Event Spotlight: Jamaica Kincaid @ Northwestern

Acclaimed Antiguan author Jamaica Kincaid (I read a couple of her books in college - did you?) comes to Northwestern on Thursday for the 2008 Leon Forrest Lecutre "On Writing." Having left her home country at 17 to comes to the US, Kincaid has been a staff writer at the New Yorker and is now teaching at Harvard. If you get the chance, check out her memoir My Brother for a very interesting and raw account of her family and the way she does and does not fit in. If you're interested in seeing her talk, head to Harris Hall 107 at 1181 Sheridan Rd. in Evanston for her 5pm lecture (free and open to the public). Call 847-467-3005 for more information.
