Book Discussion for One Maryland One Book: There There

October 2, 2023 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us for a thoughtful virtual discussion of the 2023 One Maryland One Book Selection, “There There” by Tommy Orange. A description of the book provided by the publisher reads, “Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame in Oakland. Dene Oxedrene is pulling his life together after his uncle’s death and has come to work the powwow and to honor his uncle’s memory. Edwin Frank has come to find his true father. Bobby Big Medicine has come to drum the Grand Entry. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil Red Feather; Orvil has taught himself Indian dance through YouTube videos, and he has come to the Big Oakland Powwow to dance in public for the very first time. Tony Loneman is a young Native American boy whose future seems destined to be as bleak as his past, and he has come to the Powwow with darker intentions–intentions that will destroy the lives of everyone in his path.” Find “There There” in the catalog!
