Book Launch: NoViolet Bulawayo presents Glory
In conversation with Novuyo Tshuma
Co-presented with Odyssey Bookstore (South Hadley, MA)
Greenlight is honored to welcome award-winning author of the Booker-prize finalist We Need New Names, NoViolet Bulawayo, for the launch of her new novel Glory. Named a most anticipated book of 2022 by Vulture, Buzzfeed, and Oprah Daily, and hailed as “genius” (Jason Reynolds) and “like nothing we’ve read before” (Book Riot), Bulawayo’s new blockbuster of a novel chronicles the decline of an oppressive regime, and the chaotic kinetic potential for real liberaiton that rises in its wake. After the unexpected fall of Old Horse, the long-serving leader of a fictional country, a vividly imagined nation of animals wrestle for power and reconciliation, unveiling the ruthlessness and strategy required to uphold the illusion of absolute power and the imagination and optimism needed to overthrow it. Join us for a virtual launch event co-presented with our friends at Odyssey Bookstore in South Hadley, MA, who have chosen Glory as their March First Editions Club selection. Together we celebrate this epic work by a major new voice in fiction, interviewed and joined in conversation with acclaimed author Novuyo Tshuma (House of Stone).
