Emmanuel IdumaIN-STORE: Live on Flatbush Ave! 
Tuesday, February 28, 7:30 PM ET 
Emmanuel Iduma presents 
I am Still With You: A Reckoning with Silence, Inheritance, and History  
In conversation with Amitava Kumar


Already known as a gorgeous literary stylist and keen-eyed art critic, Iduma unfurls his inimitable, rhythmic prose to tell the story of his return to Nigeria after years of living in New York, in the hopes of learning the fate of his missing uncle, who disappeared in the Nigerian Civil War. Equal parts memoir, national history, and political reckoning, I am Still with You is a keenly felt story of loss and grief, both deeply personal and collective. Fellow author Amitava Kumar joins Iduma for a reading, discussion, and Q&A for what is sure to be an evening "both epic and intimate" (Margo Jefferson) on the Greenlight stage.
