Labriola Book Club: Dog Flowers
Join the Labriola National American Indian Data Center's inaugural book club on Sunday, July 10 to discuss Danielle Geller’s debut memoir, “Dog Flowers.” The author is a member of the Navajo Nation: born to the Tsi’naajinii, born for the white man. The theme for this book discussion encompasses archival work and storytelling through memoir.
“After Danielle’s mother dies of a withdrawal from alcohol during a period of homelessness, she is forced to return to Florida. Using her training as a librarian and archivist, Geller collects her mother’s documents, diaries and photographs into a single suitcase and begins on a journey of confronting her family’s history and the decisions she’s been forced to make, a journey that will end at her mother’s home: the Navajo reservation.”
This is an open event and will take place virtually.
