This event honors author N. Scott Momaday. Terry Tempest Williams will read, in its entirety, Momaday’s Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land.
Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land is a magnificent testament to the earth, from Pulitzer Prize-winning, 2021 recipient of the Frost Medal for distinguished lifetime achievement in poetry, novelist and poet N. Scott Momaday. In Earth Keeper, he reflects on his native ground and its influence on his people and recalls stories of his childhood, stories that have been passed down through generations, stories that reveal a profound and sacred connection to the American landscape and a reverence for the natural world.
In his moving and lyrical book, which includes original artwork by the author, Momaday offers an homage and a warning. He reminds us that the Earth is a sacred place of wonder and beauty; a source of strength and healing that must be protected before it’s too late. As he so eloquently yet simply expresses, we must all be keepers of the Earth.
