P&P Live! : Ishmael Beah - Little Family — in conversation with Reza Aslan

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, April 28, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

Beah gained international acclaim with A Long Way Gone, the unforgettable account of his years as a child soldier in Sierra Leone. In his new novel he continues his exploration of the uneasily twinned themes of childhood and survival with the story of five young people in a torn and uncertain country. Led by the bookish—but street smart—Elimane, the group carves out a home for itself in an abandoned airplane. With the help of a cryptic outsider, they manage to stay under the radar—until one of their band courts danger by succumbing to a fascination with the sons and daughters of their nation’s corrupt leaders. Beah will be joined in conversation by Reza Aslan, Iranian-American scholar of religious studies, television host, and author, most recently, of God: A Human History
