Join the Free Library and We Are the Seeds for the rescheduled One Book, One Philadelphia virtual Finale event, in celebration of the many voices heard in Tommy Orange's novel There There and throughout the One Book season earlier this year.

Performances will feature local artists Urie and Cory Ridgeway (Nanticoke Lenape); Native Nations Dance Theater (Blackfeet/Seminole/Creek); Mabel Negrete (Counter Narrative Society) with Campatlanezi (Danza Azteca del Anahuac); master storyteller Tchin (Narragansett); Cassie Rose Mitchell (Modoc/Klamath); We are the Seeds Dance Troupe (Saponi/Tuscarora/Narragansett); and violinist Lauren Garrett (Eastern Shoshone of Wind River).
Following the performances the artists will be in conversation about their creative and cultural practices, their relationships with Philadelphia, and staying connected to their roots.
This event is co-presented by We Are the Seeds, an organization founded by a team of Indigenous women committed to uplifting and centering Indigenous voices through the arts.
The One Book, One Philadelphia Finale is respectfully and warmly dedicated to the memory of Kyle Shenandoah. We honor his impactful civic work as a beloved Grays Ferry community leader and an advocate for issues affecting Indigenous communities.
