NU Spring Writers' Festival Reading: Lesley Nneka Arimah

  • The Block Museum 40 Arts Circle Drive Evanston, IL, 60208 United States (map)

As part of the Northwestern University Spring Writers’ Festival, join writer Lesley Nneka Arimah, whose debut story collection, What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky (Riverhead, 2017), offers a “humanizing portrait of both the Nigerian citizen and first-generation young female immigrant” (Liz von Klemperer). Evocative, wrenching, and subversive, this dazzlingly accomplished collection explores the ties that bind us–parents and children, husbands and wives, lovers and friends–to one another and to the places we call home. This event is held in conjunction with the Northwestern University English Department and the Block Museum.
