Ethics of Now: Tommy Orange
August 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
To read Tommy Orange is to contend with histories that, as he puts it, “run counter to the way the American narrative has been told.” In There, There he opts for brutal honesty over comforting fictions and empathy over complacency. In so doing, he offers Native Americans and all Americans a means of healing the wounds of the past and present.
