An evening with two of Africa’s greatest writers.
Nuruddin Farah’s new novel is Crossbones. He is “one of the real interpreters of experience on our troubled continent,” wrote Nadine Gordimer. “His insight goes deep, beyond events, into the sorrows and joys, the frustrations and achievements of our lives.”
Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o’s most recent book is Dreams in a Time of War: A Childhood Memoir. “The work he offers us here is like nothing that’s gone before,” wrote Marie Arana. “The picture of Kenya that he presents is admirably free of cant or sentimentality, and yet it is enough to make you weep.”
