In Afterlives, the 10th novel from the winner of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Literature, Abdulrazak Gurnah delivers a sweeping, multi-generational saga of displacement, loss, and love, set against the brutal colonization of East Africa and illuminating a legacy of dislocation that is still with us today.
Gurnah will be in conversation with Tope Folarin, the Executive Director of the Institute for Policy Studies, the Lannan Visiting Lecturer in Creative Writing at Georgetown University, and the author of the novel A Particular Kind of Black Man.
