Club Book: Brandon Hobson

National Book Award finalist Brandon Hobson is the author of four novels, including the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story Where the Dead Sit Talking. Hobson’s layered coming-of-age story focuses around a Cherokee boy named Sequoyah. After a tumultuous childhood marked by abuse and neglect, sensitive Sequoyah is thrown into the foster system. While living with the eccentric Troutt family in Oklahoma, he meets and develops feelings for a wayward young artist who shares his Native heritage and checkered family history. Hobson’s masterwork is informed by his own experiences as an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.

Seating is first-come first served, and doors will open 45 minutes before the program begins.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.  Arrive early to guarantee your spot. Club Book is a program of the Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA) and is coordinated by Library Strategies, the nonprofit consulting group of the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library. The program is made possible through Minnesota's Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
