Wandering Stars

Tommy Orange
In conversation with Bobby Wilson
April 8, 2024

“A searing study of the consequences of a genocide . . . Orange is gifted at elevating his characters without romanticizing them, and though the cast is smaller than in There There, the sense of history is deeper.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 

Tommy Orange, the Pulitzer Prize-finalist and author of the breakout bestseller There There, returns to ALOUD with one of TIME Magazine’s most anticipated books of 2024, Wandering Stars, which traces the legacies of the Colorado Sand Creek Massacre of 1864 and the Carlisle Indian Industrial School through three generations of a family. Orange’s new novel is piercing in its poetry, sorrow, and rage, and is a devastating indictment of America’s war on its own people. 

Orange was in conversation with Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota actor, writer, poet, visual artist, and comedian Bobby “Dues” Wilson
