An Evening with Greg Sarris: Memoir on Homeland and Belonging

About this event

Please join us for an intimate evening of reading and conversation with award-winning author and tribal leader Greg Sarris for his new memoir, Becoming Story: A Journey among Seasons, Places, Trees, and Ancestors. In this powerful new work, Sarris offers a searching portrait of his own life, from his upbringing in Santa Rosa’s Indian Country to the discovery of his own Indigenous ancestry to his work as an elected leader of the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo tribes.

Sarris will be joined by Caryl Hart, Ph.D., Vice Chair California Coastal Commission, for discussion and audience questions about his writing and his work serving his fifteenth consecutive term as Chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. This will be followed by book signing. Light refreshments will be available on the patio and the Laguna Environmental Center garden will be open for your enjoyment. Books are available for advance purchase with event registration. To purchase the book in advance, select the book option as an Add-On during check out. A limited number of books will be available at the event.

This event will take place at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation’s Great Blue Heron Hall, located in the heart of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed and surrounded by the mountains and plains that feature prominently in Sarris’ writings. We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to host Chairman Sarris and highlight his new book in partnership with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and Heyday Books.
