Ayesha Harruna Attah — “The Hundred Wells of Salaga”

Feb. 27, 2019 7:00 pm
Hooker Auditorium, Clapp Laboratory

Ayesha Harruna Attah ’05 is the author of one of The Millions’ “Most Anticipated” books for the first half of 2019: “The Hundred Wells of Salaga.” The novel centers around the lives of two women during the scramble for Africa in pre-colonial Ghana, which, according to a preview by The Millions, “gives a texture and specificity to the anonymous tales of the Middle Passage.”
