There There, A Novel of Millennial Native American Voices   

Online Class:  A ZOOM invitation link will be sent one day before each class session begins.

Join us for this class where we will read and discuss There There, Tommy Orange’s debut novel and a 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Acclaimed by critics as “powerful,” “compassionate,” “eloquent,” and “riveting,” the book uses multiple points of view to introduce an ensemble of Native American characters negotiating life in 21st century urban America, while anticipating attendance at a powwow in the Oakland (CA) Coliseum. During the first class, we will explore Orange’s writing style, plot development, and characterization. In our second session we will continue this discussion, followed by a focus on the novel’s major themes.
