Harris and Nkweti
Zakiya Dalila Harris, who received an MFA in creative writing from The New School, worked in editorial at Knopf/Doubleday before leaving to write her debut novel. In The Other Black Girl, a whip-smart and dynamic thriller coupled with sly social commentary, two young Black women navigate working together in the stark white world of New York City book publishing. Nana Nkweti is a Cameroonian-American writer, AKO Caine Prize finalist, and graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Walking on Cowrie Shells is a “boisterous and high-spirited debut” (Kirkus starred review) that focuses on the lives of “hyphenated-Americans” with a multicultural heritage in the United States and Africa. Sponsored in part by UA Little Rock Department of English.
