Tommy Orange’s wondrous and shattering bestselling novel follows 12 characters from Native communities. They are all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to one another in ways they may not yet realize. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion, sacrifice, and heroism.

One of the Best Books of the Year: The Washington Post, NPR, Time, O, The Oprah Magazine, The Dallas Morning News, GQ, Entertainment Weekly, BuzzFeed, San Francisco Chronicle,The Boston Globe. A book signing will follow the lecture.

This event is free to Chico State and Butte College students with student ID. Student tickets can be reserved in person at the University Box Office.
