Wow! We had the immense honor of hosting Tommy Orange, author of There, There, at City College this past Wednesday. Mr. Orange was interviewed by CCSF instructor, activist, and author Benjamin Bac Sierra. He spoke about his recent novel and his plans for the future. This was great opportunity for the writers in the crowd because Mr. Orange spoke extensively about his writing process, the books and writers that have influenced him, and how he applies his past experience as a musician to his writing today. Mr. Orange then read a passage from his novel. It was amazing to see an author read their own work how they intended it to be read; his reading was powerful and inspiring. The event was concluded with a Q&A and book signing session.
