Yaa Gyasi in conversation with Tracy K. Smith
A riveting, kaleidoscopic debut novel and the beginning of a major career: a novel about race, history, ancestry, love, and time that traces the descendants of two sisters torn apart in eighteenth-century Africa across three hundred years in Ghana and America.

Two half sisters, Effia and Esi, unknown to each other, are born into different villages in eighteenth-century Ghana. Stretching from the wars of Ghana to slavery and the Civil War in America, from the coal mines in the American South to the Great Migration to twentieth-century Harlem, Yaa Gyasi's novel moves through histories and geographies and captures--with outstanding economy and force-- the troubled spirit of our own nation. She has written a modern masterpiece.

Tracy K. Smith will join Ms. Gyasi in conversation.
