There, There book discussion group

Join our book discussion group! The Boston Public Library will be discussing "There, There" by Tommy Orange on Wednesday, November 17, at 10:30 a.m.

Tommy Orange's wondrous and shattering novel follows 12 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.

This discussion will be in-person. All patrons at this book discussion must wear a face mask that covers both mouth and nose for the duration of the event. There will be no food or drinks allowed in the lecture hall.

  • 10:30am - 11:30am
  • 1961 Centre Street
