NoViolet Bulawayo’s We Need New Names, about a young girl’s journey out of Zimbabwe and to America, won numerous awards and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The New York Times called it a “deeply felt and fiercely written debut novel.” NoViolet earned her MFA at Cornell University, where she was a recipient of the Truman Capote Fellowship. She was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford, where she now teaches as a Jones Lecturer in Fiction. NoViolet grew up in Zimbabwe.
Story Hour in the Library is a monthly prose reading series held in UC Berkeley’s Morrison Library.
