Winter Words featuring Yaa Gyasi in conversation with Chris Jackson

February 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6

$25 – $80

In her debut novel, 26-year old Yaa Gyasi expertly explores the trans-Atlantic legacy of slavery stretched over eight generations. Homegoing has been compared to Toni Morrison’s Beloved and Alex Haley’s Roots, and was called “an inspiration” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. It has been nominated for the Andrew Carnegie Medal and is a finalist for The Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize. Gyasi was recently named one of the National Book Foundation’s ‘5 Under 35,’ which recognizes debut fiction writers whose work promises to leave a lasting impression on the literary landscape.
