CSUCI Campus Reading Celebration
Pulitzer Prize finalist Tommy Orange will visit CSU Channel Islands (CSUCI) on Wed., Jan. 29 for CSUCI’s annual Campus Reading Celebration.
Orange will be discussing his New York Times bestseller “There There,” from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Grand Salon on campus and will do a book-signing afterward.
The CSUCI campus community chose the “There There” book to provide a starting point for some important and timely conversations about Native Americans’ present-day experiences in the U.S. “There There” is the story of Native Americans living in the area of Oakland, California, as they struggle with a wide array of challenges ranging from depression and alcoholism, to unemployment, fetal alcohol syndrome, and the challenges of living with an “ambiguously nonwhite” ethnic identity. All coalesce at a community powwow and its attempted robbery.
The Campus Reading Celebration event is free to all CSUCI students, faculty and staff and to all non-CSUCI students with a valid student ID. Tickets for the public are $5; RSVPs are required.
