Greg Sarris in Conversation with Tanya Thrasher at Politics and Prose


Saturday, April 9 | 5:00 pm

Accomplished author, university professor, and tribal leader Greg Sarris will celebrate his new memoir, Becoming Story, with Tanya Thrasher (Cherokee Nation) at Politics and Prose Bookstore in D.C.

For the first time in more than twenty-five years, Greg Sarris–whose novels are esteemed alongside those of Louise Erdrich and Stephen Graham Jones–presents a book about his own life. In Becoming Story, Sarris creates a kaleidoscopic narrative about the forces that shaped his early years and his eventual work as a tribal leader. He considers the deep past, historical traumas, and possible futures of his homeland. His acclaimed storytelling skills are in top form here, and he charts his journey in prose that is humorous, searching, and profound.
