Lesley Nneka Arimah Reading

About this event

Arimah is the author of the 2017 story collection What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky. She is a winner of a 2017 O. Henry Prize for short story. In fall 2017, she is teaching fiction-writing in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Minnesota.

"A witty, oblique and mischievous storyteller, Arimah can compress a family history into a few pages and invent utopian parables, magical tales and nightmare scenarios while moving deftly between comic distancing and insightful psychological realism," according to the New York Times Book Review. "She is conducting adventures in narrative on her own terms."

Free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations necessary.

Co-sponsored by the Edelstein-Keller Visiting Writer Series, the Creative Writing Program, the Department of English, and the Weisman Art Museum.
