Join us on April 12, 2024, at 236 Royce Hall from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM for an insightful presentation by Ali Farah, author of “Commander of the River.” Delve into the captivating narrative of Yabar, the eighteen-year-old protagonist, navigating the complexities of identity amidst Somalia’s post-civil war era. Through fragments of a father figure and the mythical tale of the “commander of the river,” Farah intricately weaves a story that explores the interplay between memory, trauma, and cultural heritage. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in a profound exploration of postmemory and its impact on shaping the individual and collective consciousness. Be sure to read a short excerpt from “Commander of the River” to enrich your experience ahead of the author’s presentation.

RSVP here.
