TOMMY ORANGE @ CCSF

We have the immense honor of hosting Tommy Orange, Pulitzer Prize Finalist and author of There, There, at CCSF’s Ocean Campus. Come join Forum for the unique opportunity to hear a local author speak about this beautiful novel, on Wednesday Novemeber 20th, from 10:30 to 12:30, @ the Diego Rivera Theater at the Ocean Campus.

From the City College website:

“Tommy Orange is the author of There There, a multi-generational, relentlessly paced story about a side of America few of us have ever seen: the lives of urban Native Americans. Pulitzer Prize Nominee and one of The New York Times’ top books of 2018, There There shows us violence and recovery, hope and loss, identity and power, dislocation and communion, and the beauty and despair woven into the history of a nation and its people. Orange talks about his craft, the writing process, and Native American history and culture, often meticulously researched visual presentations.”

Members of the Forum team will be there! Stay tuned for a recap and pictures!

The event is free and open to the public.
