All Our Names
Dinaw Mengestu
In conversation with novelist Laila Lalami

From the MacArthur Award-winning writer, comes a subtle and quietly devastating new novel about love, exile and the fragmentation of lives that straddle countries and histories. All Our Names is a tale of friendship between two young men who come of age during an African revolution and the emotional and physical boundaries that tear them apart--one drawn into peril, the other into the safety of the American Midwest. In this political novel, Mengestu presents a portrait of love and grace, of self-determination, of the names we are given and the names we earn.

FREE/Reservations recommended. For more information and FREE reservations please call (213) 228-7025 or visit www.lfla.org/aloud.
