Ngugi wa Thiong'o and Peter Kimani with Andy Tepper
A towering figure of contemporary African literature, Ngugi wa Thiong'o's latest memoir, Birth of a Dream Weaver, tells the story of his creative awakening as a university student and budding writer in the early 1960s, on the cusp of Kenyan independence. Peter Kimani's debut novel, Dance of the Jakaranda, weaves together a multi-generational, multi-ethnic tale of the formation of modern Kenya, a riveting saga of railroads, revolt, and secret ties. Join us for a special, far-reaching conversation as Ngugi and Kimani discuss their work, their homeland, and the myriad dimensions of African writing today.
