Go Big Read author event with Yaa Gyasi scheduled

“We are all a million things at once,” Yaa Gyasi has said about “Transcendent Kingdom.”

Her book uses fiction to explore the very real issues of race, immigration, science, faith and family. In it, we meet Gifty, a graduate student in neuroscience and the only member of her Ghanaian family born in the United States, as she examines her family’s experience of immigrating and her own place in the world.

Gyasi will discuss her novel at this year’s Go Big Read keynote event Nov. 3 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Memorial Union’s Shannon Hall. No tickets are required for this free in-person, live event, which will also be livestreamed at gobigread.wisc.edu.
