How do stories of war live on in memories, families, and nations? This event with Lesley Nneka Arimah, author of the award-winning collection of short stories “What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky” and 2017 Kirkus Prize winner, will explore how human experiences of war filter down through generations—both at home and in public life.

In an engaging, unfiltered dialogue with Minnesota author and educator Marian Hassan, Arimah will discuss war, grief, girlhood, and human connection as she draws on her short fiction and personal experience.

Don’t miss this final event in our four-part War and Memory discussion series with lauded, celebrated, and inspiring authors!
