Rain Taxi presents BEN OKRI
Tuesday, February 22, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Ben Okri, Booker Prize winning author, returns to the publishing world with two new publications for audiences across the spectrum of age and interest from Other Press. In a new imaginative environmental fable, Every Leaf A Hallelujah, Okri spins a wonder-filled adventure story, echoing climate activist Greta Thunberg’s message that “no one is too small to make a difference,” while Astonishing the Gods, originally released in 1995, is a genre-bending, imaginative novel (now including a new introduction penned by Okri) making a timely return — in 2019 the book was selected as one of the BBC’s “100 novels that shaped our world.” Don’t miss this special event with one of the foremost African writers of our time!
