Please join us for a reading and conversation of the much-anticipated debut novel by DK Nnuro, What Napoleon Could Not Do. “DK Nnuro’s striking first novel offers its readers a highly nuanced portrait of how the shadow of American hegemony shapes the lives of two Ghanian siblings, one who immigrates and one who doesn’t. In Nnuro's deft hands, these particulars rise into a vision, panoramic in scope, of the global trade not in goods and services but in fantasy, desire, and regret.” —Adam Haslett
Ghanian-born author DK Nnuro is a Johns Hopkins and Writers' Workshop graduate. He has taught novel writing at the University of Iowa and is currently curator of special projects at the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art. He lives in Iowa City, Iowa.
Nnuro will be joined in conversation by Writers’ Workshop alum, writer and current Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing Emory University, Tameka Cage Conley.
