Check out our picks of the week!
We’re kicking off the year with a double-barreled shot from the prolific and multitalented Nnedi Okorafor, who is already beloved for her Binti series (a classic of 21st-century sci-fi) and has also made numerous comics Marvel’s Black Panther and the Shuri spin-off series. After the Rain is a stand-alone original graphic novel that adapts one of her earlier short stories about a young Nigerian-American woman who awakens mysterious ancestral powers while visiting her grandmother in Nigeria. Remote Control, meanwhile, is a slim fantasy novel about a girl who becomes the adopted child of the Angel of Death.
Edem Awumey’s novel, translated from the French, follows the protagonist’s search through his hometown on Africa’s Atlantic coast for a lost lover and muse, crossing paths along the way with former theatre friends who have since joined the establishment. We’re elated to host Awumey on Thursday, February 25th, in conversation with H. Nigel Thomas!
