The daughter of a U.N. official from Ghana and an Armenian-American looks back at her nomadic and tragic family life in order to move forward.
When Nadia Owusu moved to New York City at age 18, she had already lived in five countries outside the United States and her parents’ homelands of Ghana (her father’s) and Armenia (her mother’s family). She grew up disconnected, without a culture she called her own. In "Aftershocks" she shares her jarring story of being state-less and, ultimately, parent-less, as the survivor of trauma; she describes the heart and will it takes to pull through. Don’t miss hearing about her life and memoir looking at race identity and immigration, the seismic emotional toll of family secrets, and the push and pull of belonging in the United States.

Moderating this conversation is Jessica Shattuck, New York Times best-selling author and finalist for the PEN/Winship Award. Her writing has appeared in such publications as the New Yorker, Wired, New York Times, and Glamour.
