The Norwich University Writers Series welcomes author Abdi Nor Iftin to campus at 4 p.m. on Monday, March 23, in the Kreitzberg Library Multipurpose Room to discuss his book.
This event is free and open to the public.
Abdi Nor Iftin is the author of “Call Me American,” a memoir of his survival of civil war in his native Somalia and journey to a new life in the United States. Call Me American has been widely praised: “Riveting” (The New Yorker), “enlightening and immediate” (Booklist), “wrenching yet hopeful…[an] extraordinary saga” (Publisher’s Weekly), and “A searing memoir…that impressively remains upbeat, [and] highly inspiring” (Kirkus Reviews). Abdi is currently studying political science at Boston College. In January 2020, he became a U.S. citizen.
