Leslie Marmon SilkoThe Turquoise Ledge: A Memoir

Acclaimed Native American poet, memoirist and novelist Leslie Marmon Silko reads from and discusses her new book The Turquoise Ledge: A Memoir. Silko’s new book, her first in ten years, combines memoir with family history and reflections on the creatures and beings that command her attention and inform her vision of the world, taking readers along on her daily walks through the arroyos and ledges of the Sonoran desert in Arizona. The book is Silko’s first extended work of nonfiction, and its ambitious scope, clear prose, and inventive structure are captivating. The Turquoise Ledge will delight loyal fans and new readers alike, and it marks the return of the unique voice and vision of a gifted storyteller.
