Author Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond: "Powder Necklace"

Author Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond: "Powder Necklace"

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Author Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond shares stories about her contemporary debut novel, "Powder Necklace," as well as her writing process. Far from the classic finding-your-roots story, this tale about a British teen’s return to her parents’ Ghana homeland is unsettling drama, with no clear coming home. That is what makes the wry, honest first-person narrative so memorable and so surprising, according to Booklist. Brew-Hammond draws on her own American Ghanaian identity to dramatize the hardship and the rich diversity of a multicultural heritage. AfriWare Inc. will sell books.
