Paperback Launch: Nadia Owusu presents Aftershocks: a Memoir
In conversation with Tope Folarin

Whiting Award winner Nadia Owusu joins Greenlight (virtually!) to launch the paperback edition of Aftershocks, a deeply felt memoir about the push and pull of belonging, the seismic emotional toll of family secrets, and the heart it takes to pull through. A nomadic childhood and family secrets and fractures, both lived and inherited, wrought instability on Owusu’s life. With these and other ruptures, Nadia arrived in New York as a young woman feeling stateless, motherless, and uncertain about her future, yet eager to find her own identity. What followed, however, were periods of depression in which she struggled to hold herself and her siblings together. Aftershocks depicts the way she hauled herself from the wreckage of her life’s perpetual quaking, the means by which she has finally come to understand that the only ground firm enough to count on is the one written into existence by her own hand. Owusu is joined in conversation by Tope Folarin, author of A Particular Kind of Black Man
