The Bound In Green book club meets to discuss books about people of extraordinary character and spirit—people like you.
We'll meet again on Tuesday, January 15 at 7 p.m. at 4400 Nicklaus Court in Niwot (near Boulder), to discuss Tommy Orange's There There. His vivid characters explore the Native American experience in modern-day Oakland, California. The New York Times Book Review selected the novel as one of the Best Books of 2018. The Times calls There There "an ambitious meditation on identity and its broken alternatives, on myth filtered through the lens of time and poverty and urban life, on tradition all the more pressing because of its fragility.” The title comes from Gertrude Stein, who also grew up in Oakland, and later wrote that "the place where she’d grown up in Oakland had changed so much, that so much development had happened there, that the there of her childhood, the there there, was gone, there was no there there anymore.”
Light hors d'oeuvres dinner provided. An RSVP is not required, but if you'd like more information, please contact Julie Kaewert ’81 at (720) 530-5651.
Bound In Green meets on the third Tuesday of odd-numbered months, from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
