Selected date

Selected time

5:30 PM  –  7:00 PM

In her debut book, acclaimed journalist and New Yorker staff writer Alexis Okeowo offers a powerful, timeless, and masterful work that explores Africa’s clash of fundamentalism and the ordinary women and men who are fighting back.

The American daughter of Nigerian immigrants to the U.S., Okeowo spent five years on the ground in Africa – landscapes both beautiful and impoverished. The result is a compelling, and often heart-wrenching, and always humane narrative of intertwined stories about how everyday people deal with extraordinary circumstances.

Books will be sold at AWM before and after the event.
