ID : 85038   
« back to classes page
How can a soldier from the Laguna Pueblo deal with racism, the death of family, guilt, the loss of culture, and remorse when he returns home at the end of WWII? Written by Leslie Marmon Silko, the award-winning Ceremony explores this young vet’s ordeal of facing and healing from several traumas in his life on his journey of recovery from his PTSD. We’ll explore this excellent example of Southwest literature, based on assigned readings from the novel in conjunction with a series of questions to stimulate discussion of the book’s themes. Participants must be willing to read the novel Ceremony, available from your public library, bookseller or at amazon.com.
