He is currently an honorary board member at Red Sky Performance.The first evening, April 4th, will feature Soto reading from his intimate memoir Every Step You Take (2011), followed by a book signing and personal interview between Soto and Red Sky’s artistic director Sandra Laronde. On April 5th, there will be a screening of the critically acclaimed PBS documentary Water Flowing Together. While Gwendolen Cates’ film explores Soto’s career an artist of Navajo descent, Red Sky notes, “it is as much about the complexities of the man, about heritage, identity and transition.”
