  1. Internationally acclaimed author Leslie Marmon Silko, Laguna Pueblo, deliveres the fall Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community, at Phoenix’s Heard Museum. This semi-annual lecture series is held through a partnership between the Heard Museum and Arizona State University.

    Silko delivers a relaxed, informal presentation as she reads from her forthcoming memoir, Turquoise Ledge.

    Silko is best known for her universally-praised novel Ceremony, which was first published in 1977 to rave reviews. It continues to be the American Indian novel most often set on college and university syllabi, and is one of the few individual works by any Native author to have received book-length critical assessments. Ceremony’s message of healing and reconciliation between races and people resonates with both Native and non-Native readers to this day.

    Silko has won prizes, fellowships, and grants from such sources as the National Endowment for the Arts and The Boston Globe. She was the youngest writer to be included in The Norton Anthology of Women’s Literature for her short story “Lullaby.” In 1981 she won a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant. Silko has continued to be a force in American Indian literature in both the fiction and non-fiction genres.

    The lecture series is sponsored by the Heard Museum and Arizona State University’s American Indian Studies Program, Department of English, Department of History, Labriola Center and Women and Gender Studies Program.
