Global Georgia Initiative/Betty Jean Craige Annual Lecture: NoViolet Bulawayo

NoViolet Bulawayo will speak on “The Immigrant Experience in America” at the 2019 Betty Jean Craige Lecture.

Bulawayo grew up in Zimbabwe. She earned her MFA from Cornell University, where she was a recipient of the Truman Capote Fellowship, and has also held fellowships at Princeton, Harvard, and Stanford, where she now teaches fiction. Bulawayo’s debut novel, We Need New Names, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and The Guardian’s First Book Award, was named a New York Times Notable Book, and won the PEN/Hemingway Prize, the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, and many other honors. Bulawayo’s short story “Hitting Budapest,” which became the first chapter of We Need New Names, won the 2011 Caine Prize for African Writing, sometimes called the African Booker.
