Bring some food to share for a dinner and facilitated discussion of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in Fiction, There There by Tommy Orange, Sunday, January 12, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Lanier House.
“What does it really mean to be an Indian/Native American/American Indian/Native? Orange’s vivid debut novel allows a unique cast—ranging from teenagers to elders—to pull this question apart even as they add a modern layer of complexity: They live in the urban landscape of Oakland, California... and intersect at the Big Oakland Powwow, with chaotic results” (Amazon Book Review). Tommy Orange is faculty at the Institute of American Indian Arts MFA program. He is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma.
All are welcome, even if you didn’t read the book (but it’s actually a very quick read!). Mark your calendar and visit the Cathedral Book Store for your copy. The evening will consist of a structured conversation over a shared meal as we express our faith by learning more about our neighbor.
A reservation is required. Contact Jeannie Mahood with any questions and please RSVP before January 6: jmahood@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031.
