Special Event With Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o
Start Date: 11/12/2018Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 11/12/2018End Time: 9:30 PM
Event Description:
One of today's leading African writers and scholars, Kenyan-born Thiong'o's Wrestling with the Devil: A Prison Memoir (The New Press) is the unforgettable chronicle of the year this brilliant novelist and memoirist, long favored for the Nobel Prize, was thrown in a Kenyan jail without charge. There, he lives in a prison block with eighteen other political prisoners, quarantined from the general prison population. He captures not only the excruciating pain that comes from being cut off from his wife and children, but also the spirit of defiance that defines hope. Ultimately, Wrestling with the Devil is a testimony to the power of imagination to help humans break free of confinement, which is truly the story of all art.
