Book Talk with Tommy Orange
Thursday, October 15, 2020
Join the UCLA AISC and Dr. Shannon Speed for an afternoon discussion with Tommy Ornage (Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma).
Tommy Orange’s debut book, There There, gives a glimpse into the lives of 12 Native American characters whose lives collide at an annual pow-wow. The novel provides an exhilarating, contemporary, and poetic voice depicting the struggles and disorienting experiences of American Indians living within an urban environment. Orange’s book was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize and has received countless awards and critical acclaim. He received an MFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts and is a 2014 MacDowell Fellow and 2016 Writing by Writers Fellow.
