This free event, made possible by a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read grant and The Library Foundation, opens a new window, will feature an intimate conversation with Tommy Orange, award-winning author of There, There. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
Orange is a graduate from the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts. He is a 2014 MacDowell Fellow, and a 2016 Writing by Writers Fellow. He is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. He was born and raised in Oakland, California, and currently lives in Angels Camp, California
About There, There: "Orange's commanding debut chronicles contemporary Native Americans in Oakland, as their lives collide in the days leading up to the city's inaugural Big Oakland Powwow. Bouncing between voices and points of view, Orange introduces 12 characters, their plotlines hinging on things like 3-D-printed handguns and VR-controlled drones... The propulsion of both the overall narrative and its players are breathtaking as Orange unpacks how decisions of the past mold the present, resulting in a haunting and gripping story." - Publisher's Weekly
