Acclaimed Nigerian-born author Akwaeke Emezi draws us into their debut novel Freshwater. Like exhibiting artist Allison Janae Hamilton, Emezi explores ancestral relationships, the world of ghosts, spirituality, and the “mysteries of the self ” in a semi-autobiographical tale about Ada, a girl with multiple identities and “one foot on the other side.” Join us for a reading followed by a conversation with Emezi and Hamilton.

This program is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
