An Evening with Greg Sarris: Homeland and Belonging


Tuesday, August 2 | 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Please join the Laguna Foundation 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.

The event 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 your ticket or at the event.
