Book discussion of There There by Tommy Orange

Book discussion of There There by Tommy Orange

Study Room
Wednesday, May 29, 6:00pm to 7:30pm

A relentlessly paced multigenerational story of twelve characters, each of whom have private reasons for traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow. They dream of coming together in glorious communion--a spectacle of sacred tradition and pageantry--but there will also be sacrifice, and heroism, and unspeakable loss.

Here is a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange writes of the urban Native American in a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. An unforgettable debut, destined to become required reading in schools and universities across the country.
