Broken Places & Outer Spaces: Finding Creativity in the Unexpected - Nnedi Okorafor

Staff Pick

 Author of the Binti trilogy (and my favorite sci-fi writer) Nnedi Okorafor opens herself up in this little memoir, giving readers a glimpse into the driving forces behind her powerful storytelling. A child of immigrants from a lively Nigerian hometown, a star athlete who became paralyzed overnight, a black woman who experiences racial harassment—Okorafor has plenty to draw from when creating her characters: strong-willed black women who repeatedly overcome hardships. She believes that out of the broken emerges the fantastic, and this is precisely what you feel in her storytelling.
