DMA Arts & Letters Live presents Abi Daré and Andrea Lee, two award-winning novelists with riveting stories set in Nigeria and Madagascar, cultures featured in the DMA’s exhibition "Moth to Cloth: Silk in Africa." The two authors will be in conversation with Jaina Sanga.

Daré’s celebrated novel The Girl with the Louding Voice is the unforgettable, inspiring story of Adunni, a teenage girl growing up in a rural Nigerian village who longs to get an education so that she can find her “louding voice” and speak up for herself. Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in her path, Adunni never loses sight of her goal of escaping the life of poverty she was born into so that she can build the future she chooses for herself while helping other girls like her do the same. 

From National Book Award–nominated writer Andrea Lee, Red Island House is an evocative novel about marriage, loyalty, identity, and clashing cultures, set in the tropical African nation of Madagascar. Lee does not have roots in Madagascar and approaches Red Island House from the perspective of an outsider and tourist rather than a Malagasy.

The recording will be available through May 11.
