WRITING FROM AFRICA
Where is Africa in world literature? After centuries of being confined to a cramped corner of the literary world—to being described by explorers, tourists, journalists, and activists—African writers discuss what it means to tell their own stories, in their own words and languages, and the journey their work takes to arrive in print, at home and abroad. Lesley Nneka Arimah’s What It Means When A Man Falls From the Sky is “completely captivating…whether you’re in Nigeria or Chicago” (Ebony); Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi’s Kintu has been called “a masterpiece of cultural memory” (Publishers Weekly), and Sarah Ladipo Manyika’s Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun is one of the “brilliant books that you really need to read” (Buzzfeed).
Lesley Nneka Arimah, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi, and Sarah Ladipo Manyika, moderated by Aaron Bady. This event is sponsored by Transit Books.
