Author Visit: Tommy Orange
January 24 @ 7:00 pm
This event is part of the One Book One Community partnership between Williamsburg Regional Library and William & Mary. The month-long series will include a January 24 discussion with Tommy Orange, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist There There. His novel examines the lives of 12 different Native Americans in the week leading up to the first Oakland Powwow, and the events that will engulf them all. Author Tommy Orange (There There) visits the Williamsburg Library Theatre as part of our One Book, One Williamsburg partnership with William & Mary. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, winner of a National Book Critics Circle prize and the American Book Award, Tommy Orange’s breakout bestseller tells the story of 12 Native Americans living in Oakland, CA. As the first Big Oakland Powwow approaches, the 12 tell their stories in alternately funny, heartbreaking, and violent detail.
Join WRL-led book discussions on January 13, January 21, and January 27, and check the the event website for more programs.
