A Reading from WRESTLING WITH THE DEVIL: A PRISON MEMOIR
Reception with Book Sale and Signing to Follow

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. The doors will open 45 minutes before the event begins.

An unforgettable chronicle of the year Ngũgĩ was thrown in prison without charge. In an effort to fight back the humiliation and the intended degradation of the spirit, Ngũgĩ decides to write a novel on toilet paper, a book that will become his classic, Devil on the Cross.

Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o is an award-winning, world-renowned Kenyan writer and academic who writes primarily in Gikuyu. His work includes novels, plays, short stories, and essays, ranging from literary and social criticism to children's literature. He is the founder and editor of the Gikuyu-language journal Mũtĩiri.
