Friends of HCL Event Update
In accordance with the Stay Home MN order, Pen Pals with Tommy Orange has been postponed.
We hope to reschedule his appearance at a to-be-determined time in the near future. Ticketholders will be contacted via e-mail as soon as possible about the new dates, including options to keep their tickets, donate their tickets, or receive a refund. With our library-based Box Office currently closed to staff, we appreciate the patience and understanding of our ticketholders as we develop concrete next steps.
Tommy Orange is the author of the New York Times bestselling novel There There, a multi-generational, relentlessly paced story about a side of America few of us have ever seen: the lives of urban Native Americans. The book is one of the most celebrated novels of the last year, having received a National Book Critics Circle Award and a PEN/Hemingway award, as well as being named one of the top ten books of 2018 by The New York Times and others. Orange is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. He was born and raised in Oakland, Calif.
