An Evening of Music Inspired by City of Orange by David Yoon
A Haunting Tale About Finding the Way Home

Have you ever woken up in a rocky wasteland and wondered where the hell you are? If that feeling was a book, it might be City of Orange, where our hero awakes in a post-apocalyptic landscape with no idea who he is and what happened to the world — or why that crow is talking to him…

City of Orange belongs in a very narrow category, alongside Emily St. John’s Station Eleven, Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road…David Yoon is willing to ask what ‘the End of the World’ really means — and provide the reader with a thoughtful, heartfelt answer.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Heads up: Despite a healthy dose of humor, City of Orange’s narrator must do what he can to survive, and at least one crow meets a grisly end.

Check it out at Seattle Public Library. Please consider buying your Bushwick choices with their local bookstore partner, Third Place Books.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle and The Bushwick Book Club Seattle.
