In collaboration with the Office for Student Engagement, the Office of Institutional Diversity, and the Reed College Library, the Multicultural Resource Center presents: A Conversation with author Tommy Orange.
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. One of The New York Times' top books of 2018 and a Pulitzer Prize finalist, 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 with meticulously researched visual presentations.
For this special event, Tommy Orange will be in conversation with Reed College Professor of English and Humanities, Pancho Savery.
Tommy Orange is a graduate of the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts. An enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, he was born and raised in Oakland, California.
