National Writers Series: Imbolo Mbue and Alan Lightman

Imbolo Mbue was born and grew up in Cameroon. She moved to the United States for college and now lives in New York City. Imbolo has written two novels: her first was “Behold the Dreamers,” and her latest is called “How Beautiful We Were.” It tells the story of people living in a fictional village in Africa. Their land and way of life is being destroyed by an American oil company, and the people decide to fight back. Imbolo appeared at a virtual National Writers Series event and spoke with fellow author Rochelle Riley, director of arts and culture for the city of Detroit.
