Join us for a virtual public presentation by the author of the highly acclaimed debut novel Homegoing, Yaa Gyasi.

Yaa Gyasi is a recipient of the National Book Foundation's 2016 "5 Under 35" Award.

Homegoing tells the story of two half-sisters born into different villages in Ghana in the eighteenth century. One of Oprah’s Best Books of the Year and a PEN/Hemingway award winner, Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem.

This event is part of the annual NDMU Common Read program.
