HHS Readers' Club

Cover of There There by Tommy Orange

November is Native American Heritage month.  In recognition of this, the HHS Readers' Club is reading There There by Tommy Orange. Orange recently earned an MFA at the Institute of American Indian Arts, and is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes of Oklahoma. A summary of the book from Goodreads states, "Tommy Orange's wondrous and shattering novel follows twelve characters from Native communities: all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to one another in ways they may not yet realize....Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American--grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, There There is at once poignant and unflinching, utterly contemporary and truly unforgettable" (

The Hartford High School Library

The HHS library has evolved into three, newly defined spaces. The computing space consists of 25 desktop computers, and a lounge area for student-teacher conferences. The Digital Media Lab is used for virtual reality experiences/tours, and for news production. The “cafe” area contains bistro chairs and stools, conference tables, a lounge area, and the circulation desk. Here students can pursue quiet study during the academic day, view presentations on the large LCD screen, socialize and have lunch during H Block, and browse the stacks.
