Reading Group

March 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Reading Group will meet on Monday, March 15, at 6:00 p.m. to discuss There, There by Tommy Orange.

  Here is a description of the book.  “One of The New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year and winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award, Tommy Orange’s wondrous and shattering bestselling novel follows twelve characters from Native communities: all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to one another in ways they may not yet realize. Among them is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, pulling his life together after his uncle’s death and working at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil, coming to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, There There is at once poignant and unflinching, utterly contemporary and truly unforgettable.”

   At this time, we are scheduled to meet via Zoom. If guidelines change and we are able, we will try to find a way to have an in-person discussion. Contact Jane Brubaker for the Meeting ID and password.
