As a novelist and essayist, much of Lalami’s work, including her latest book Conditional Citizens, focuses on issues of race and immigration. Her writing has been honored with the American Book Award, the Arab-American Book Award, and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. She’s also been a Pulitzer Prize finalist and long-listed for the Man Booker Prize. In this interactive online author reading and Q&A, Lalami will discuss how literary forms that articulate lived, personal experiences (such as essay and memoir) can inform successful diversity and inclusion efforts across the curriculum – and inspire social change in the world beyond."
