An Afternoon with Novelist Elizabeth Nunez
|Elizabeth Nunez is the award-winning author of nine novels. Her novels "Boundaries" and "Anna In-Between" were New York Times' Editors Choices. She received the 2015 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award in nonfiction for her memoir "Not For Everyday Use". This memoir's title comes from her mother's admonition to say "I love you" sparingly.
Join us for a discussion on how her fiction is in fact, "for everyday use" in its themes of Pan Africanism, neocolonialism and African derived religion. Read the Special Issue of the Journal of Pan African Studies about Elizabeth Nunez at http://www.jpanafrican.org/vol10no8.htm
