I wish I could have watched it, but no one sent me a password.

I will be buying her book. She was obviously highly knowledgeable, articulate, amusing as appropriate; well worthy to be an honorary uncommon woman.

I never got the password

Fascinating to watch it live stream on the computer at my home in Connecticut!

Tommy Orange rocks! Thanks for bringing him!!! :)

What a very warm welcome.

It was an incredible privilege to have Tommy Orange visit Mount Holyoke. Not only is his novel gripping and memorable, but his on-stage presence was thrilling. I appreciated his complete candor about everything. The way he handled the many questions, pausing for thought and seemingly spontaneous and heartfelt, was inspiring. There seemed to be nothing rehearsed about his answers, even though he must be asked the same questions countless times. I feel as if he hit on many essential truths -- about politics, about the Native American experience, about the creative process. It inspired me to want to overcome my own doubts and try to create art. One of the underappreciated aspects of the book is simply the beauty of many of its passages, its almost musical use of language. The world needs more uncompromising and unflinching people like Tommy Orange. May he enjoy a lifetime of success!
