Athens Book Club: "There There" by Tommy Orange

Book Club: "There There" by Tommy Orange

Adults Join us for the monthly book club at our Athens Branch! In the month of May, we'll read and discuss "There There" by Tommy Orange.

Twelve Native Americans came to the Big Oakland Powwow for different reasons. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. 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. 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

We're always looking for new attendees, so feel free to read the book and join us! Free and open to all adults, no registration required. Call 715-693-2144 for more information.
