Open to the public


As part of the 2019 Spring Writer 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. Learn more information on the 2019 Spring Writer Festival, taking place from May 13–15.

Presented by the Northwestern Department of English Creative Writing Program and in conjunction with the Evanston Literary Festival.
