Oliver La Farge’s, Laughing Boy might be called the Dine Romeo and Juliet. Set in the Southwest of 1914, this Pulitzer prize-winning novel relates the tale of Laughing Boy and Slim Girl who meet at a communal dance and fall in love. Raised in two different worlds, do they have a chance to build their own life together amidst the conflict between the traditional Navajo world and the world of white America? Or will they be undone by fate? Join me in reading this incredible novel and learn the answer. Participants have to be willing to obtain their own copy of the book.
