Tommy Orange

On this episode, hosts Patti Callahan Henry & Kristin Harmel welcome this week’s guest, the Pulitzer Prize-finalist and author of the breakout bestseller THERE THERE, Tommy Orange, to discuss WANDERING STARS, his masterful follow-up to his already classic first novel. Tommy Orange is a graduate of the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts. An enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, he was born and raised in Oakland, California. Tune in to hear about his highly-anticipated second novel, WANDERING STARS, which extends his constellation of narratives into the past and future, tracing the legacies of the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864 and the Carlisle Indian Industrial School through three generations. We are eager to introduce you to this “outstanding . . . dazzling work of literary fiction” (Boston Globe), which has been named to most-anticipated lists by TIME, Real Simple, Oprah Daily & NPR.
