San Francisco Library Hosts American Book Award Winner Tommy Orange

San Francisco Public Library is honored to announce its 15th Annual One City One Book main event, #ThereThere by Tommy Orange, presented in partnership with Litquake. Tommy Orange will be at the Main Library in conversation with San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck.

“There There” tells the story of urban Native Americans living in Oakland, CA, depicting a beautiful, compelling, heartbreaking and urgently real landscape of the Native experience living in the Bay Area past and present day.

Throughout the months of October and November 2019, “There There” will be widely available at all San Francisco libraries and at bookstores around the city. We are pleased to offer many events and programs related to #OneCityOneBook, including book talks, themed exhibits, related programs and speakers along with city-wide celebration of Indigenous heritage and the 50th anniversary of the Alcatraz Occupation.

This year’s One City One Book program is a joint partnership with the San Francisco Arts Commission, Oakland Public Library, City College of San Francisco, and June Jordan School of Equity. Key sponsors are Friends of the San Francisco Public Library and Litquake.
