Taiye Selasi book reading

GET YOUR TICKET IN ADVANCE!

Make way for the utterly fabulous Taiye Selasi – the rising star of “Afropolitan” fiction. Neither completely American nor African, her writing is equally eclectic in its range of themes and influences: her debut, Ghana Must Go, tells the story of  a Ghanaian-Nigerian family in the US, and traces the tragic consequences of a single act of racial discrimination.

The novel hinges on an burst appendix: when respected surgeon and recent immigrant Kwaku Sai fails to perform a miracle on a dying white patient, he’s unjustly dismissed from his job. Unable to bear the shame, Kwaku abandons his family for ten years, causing irrevocable changes in the lives of his sons and daughters.
Selasi’s writing matches lyricism with passionate politics, and Ghana Must Go has already been championed by several literary legends.

    Hi Abi. I'm easy to spot - too tall for anyone's good. Tiggy always wears purple. I'll save seats. My mobile[masked]

      I don't ALWAYS wear purple. I am wearing it today though, I must admit.

    Oops. I forgot to warn everyone - if you're planning not to attend, please un-RSVP yourself, or if very late, just phone me. It really helps. Thanks.

    How will I be able to find the meetup members? I suspect Toppings will be a full house.

    Just realised that this clashes with my Spanish class.
