Writers LIVE: Tommy Orange

May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE Series, we welcome Tommy Orange, author of There, There in conversation with Danielle Evans, author of Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self. The event is presented in partnership with CityLit Project.

There There is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen.  Here is a voice we have never heard-a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide.
