Nnedi Okorafor, author of Who Fears Death took to her Instagram Page to announce the release of her new book.

Here is the cover of my first nonfiction book! Its release date is June 2019 (TED Books). BROKEN PLACES & OUTER SPACES is part memoir, part science fiction, part lots of things. And it’s about the length of a novella. I’m so excited about this!

“A powerful journey from star athlete to sudden paralysis to creative awakening, award-winning science fiction writer Nnedi Okorafor shows that what we think are our limitations have the potential to become our greatest strengths.

In BROKEN PLACES & OUTER SPACES, Nnedi takes the reader on a journey from her hospital bed deep into her memories, from her painful first experiences with racism as a child in the suburbs of Chicago to her powerful visits to her parents’ hometown in Nigeria. From Frida Kahlo to Mary Shelly, she examines great artists and writers who have pushed through their limitations, using hardship to fuel their work. Through these compelling stories and her own, Nnedi reveals a universal truth: What we perceive as limitations have the potential to become our greatest strengths—far greater than when we were unbroken. “

Looking forward to reading this one!
