Event Description

Read the Book: Grand Avenue


Grand Avenue, a street in the center of the northern California town of Santa Rosa where "everybody's connected to everybody, " is home not only to Pomo Indians making a life outside of the reservation but also to Mexicans, Blacks, and some Portuguese, all trying to find their way among the many obstacles in their turbulent world. Bound together by a lone ancestor, the lives of the Native Americans from the core of these stories - tales full of cures, poison, family healing rituals, and a kind of humor that allows the inhabitants of Grand Avenue to see their own foibles with a saving grace.
