New Yorker staff writer Alexis Okeowo will present her debut nonfiction book, A Moonless, Starless Sky: Ordinary Women and Men Fighting Extremism in Africa. Adam Hochschild (King Leopold's Ghost) wrote: "From an abolitionist who once owned a slave to women basketball players in a war zone, Alexis Okeowo has an alert and thoughtful eye for the unexpected. The portraits and voices she brings us from Africa are so vivid that the reader can easily forget the determination and bravery it must have taken to gather them in these unhappy corners of the continent."
