Laila Lalami

Magic City Books

Event Details

Magic City Books is proud to welcome Laila Lalami, author of the new book Conditional Citizens for a virtual author event on October 12, 2020. In this starkly illuminating and impassioned book, Pulitzer Prize Finalist Laila Lalami recounts her unlikely journey from Moroccan immigrant to U.S. citizen, using it as a starting point for her exploration of the rights, liberties, and protections that are traditionally associated with American citizenship. Tapping into history, politics, and literature, she elucidates how accidents of birth–such as national origin, race, or gender–that once determined the boundaries of Americanness still cast their shadows today. Laila Lalami will be joined by Roxane Gay, author of the essay collection Bad Feminist and the memoir, Hunger. This free event will be hosted on the Zoom platform. To register in advance visit:
