Authors Day at NSU, March 31

Please join us on Friday, March 31 at Authors Day at NSU, a part of the Broward Public Library Foundation’s LitLIVE! book and author event. Invited best-selling authors Yaa Gyasi and James Hamblin, M.D., will discuss their experiences with NSU students, faculty and staff.

Yaa Gyasi

Yaa Gyasi

At 10:30 am in the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center at Alvin Sherman Library Yaa Gyasi, the debut author of Homegoing: a novel of the account of slavery’s legacy, stretched over eight generations and two countries. The book is currently #17 in hardcover fiction on the New York Times’ bestseller list. Yaa Gyasi is a graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop.


James Hamblin, M.D.

At 12 pm in the Chancellor’s Dining Room (5th floor) in the Terry Building James Hamblin, M.D., author of  If Our Bodies Could Talk, Hamblin explores the human stories behind health questions that never seem to go away—and which tend to be mischaracterized and oversimplified by marketing and news media. He is a senior editor for The Atlantic and his health segments are the most popular videos on the site.

All events are free and open to the NSU community. For additional information, please contact Lynn Larose.
