This year's Boston University Conversations in the Arts & Ideas lecture welcomes prodigious novelist, critic, and photographer, Teju Cole, to Boston University to discuss his work in this virtual conversation. Questions from the audience will follow. This virtual conversation will be moderated by poet Crystal Williams, BU’s Vice President and Associate Provost for Community & Inclusion.
Teju Cole was born in the US and raised in Nigeria—a biographical fact that informs much of his work. His first novel, Open City, won the PEN/Hemingway Award. His second, Every Day Is for the Thief, was named a Book of the Year by The New York Times. Most recently, Cole produced Blind Spot—a synthesis of written observations and travel photography.
The event is sponsored by the Boston University Center for the Humanities, Kilachand Honors College, Office of the Provost, CAS Dean’s Office, Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies, BU Arts Initiative, and CAS Core Curriculum.
