September 25 The Healing of Natalie Curtis Jane Kirkpatrick
Leader: Dottie Villesvik
Historical fiction about a very real woman who traveled with her brother from New York to the Southwest in the early twentieth century in search of healing. A gifted pianist, she is intrigued by the music of the Indigenous people and infuriated by laws that prohibit them from practicing their own culture. Her story touches ecology, education, music, friendships, advocacy, and women’s place in society.
