Meet the Author of Beasts of No Nation

Wednesday, 16 April, 4:30pm, Gothic Bookshop, Bryan Center

Join acclaimed author Uzodinma Iweala for a reading and discussion about fiction, politics, and contemporary
Africa. A lunch with interested undergraduates will precede the reading at 12 noon in the English Department lounge (Allen 328).

"In the blood and vomit and angry voices captured in Beasts of No Nation, a
reader sees human nature reforged, manacled to evil, tragically perverted."
-Los Angeles Times

"A novel so scorched by loss and anger that it's hard to hold, and so gripping
in its sheer hopeless lifeforce that it's hard to put down." -Guardian (UK)

"In this staggering debut [...], a 23-year-old Harvard graduate has written a
novel about the perversity of war, and the fragility of humanity." -Boston

Jointly sponsored by the Duke Libraries' John Hope Franklin Collection of African and African American Documentation, the Department of English, and the Center for International Studies.
