Book Launch: Arinze Ifeakandu presents God's Children Are Little Broken Things
In conversation with Brandon Taylor
Co-presented with A Public Space
We're thrilled to partner with A Public Space Books to launch the much-anticipated debut of Arinze Ifeakandu, a former APS Writing Fellow and a daring new voice in fiction. In these nine exhilirating stories of queer love in contemporary Nigeria, a man revisits the university campus where he lost his first love, aware now of what he couldn’t understand then. A young musician rises to fame at the price of pieces of himself, and the man who loves him. Ifeakandu explores with tenderness and grace the fundamental question of the heart: can deep love and hope be sustained in spite of the dominant expectations of society, and great adversity? Join us in welcoming Arinze in conversation with acclaimed author Brandon Taylor (Filthy Animals), for a celebration of this "exquisite, complex examination of the vulnerabilities of queer love and desire amid family fears, dreams, and the power of expectations" (Asako Serizawa, author of Inheritors).
