Welcome to Literature and Libations. We meet somewhere in Louisville for drinks, food, and a discussion of the book we just read. Our meetups are usually monthly at 7 pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or a Thursday, lately they've been in the Highlands. If the next book or books doesn't suit you, come to a meetup and nominate one that does or suggest a meetup here. There is no fee to join.
Join us for a drink and delicious tacos as we discuss Ceremony.
Thirty years since its original publication, Ceremony remains one of the most profound and moving works of Native American literature, a novel that is itself a ceremony of healing. Tayo, a World War II veteran of mixed ancestry, returns to the Laguna Pueblo Reservation. He is deeply scarred by his experience as a prisoner of the Japanese and further wounded by the rejection he encounters from his people. Only by immersing himself in the Indian past can he begin to regain the peace that was taken from him. Masterfully written, filled with the somber majesty of Pueblo myth, Ceremony is a work of enduring power.
Even if you don't finish the book please feel free to join us.
