Greg Sarris in Conversation with Ingrid Rojas Contreras


Tuesday, May 24 | 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Kepler’s literary foundation presents a riveting conversation between authors Greg Sarris and Ingrid Rojas Contreras.

Serving his fifteenth consecutive term as Chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, Greg Sarris has authored six books including his recently released and critically-acclaimed memoir Becoming Story. Moving between his childhood and the present day, the memoir meditates on personal and collective traumas to investigate what it means to belong to the place where you live. With warmth, humor, and profound insight he asks what it means to dedicate your life to making that connection stronger, and his questing in Becoming Story, kaleidoscopic in nature, demonstrates the transformational power of storytelling and the extent to which it is needed at this critical juncture in our nation’s timeline.

Sarris will speak with Rojas Contreras, about her forthcoming memoir The Man Who Could Move Clouds.
