Elizabeth di Grazia
Elizabeth di Grazia Travel and Study Grant

DI GRAZIA, ELIZABETH, Minnesota, will travel to Guatemala to do detailed field research on indigenous Mayans, the heritage of her two children, to contrast with her own background and inform her memoir Healing Fires. She will research the Tzutujile Maya and will meet with several families in San Juan la Laguna, exploring the medicinal and curative herb garden operated by the midwives of San Juan. She will explore the healing arts of Mayan culture and meet with her two children’s birth mothers. The trip will provide powerful emotional content and insights that will enrich the manuscript.
