JJ Amaworo Wilson will discuss his new novel, Nazaré, at The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City. The novel was inspired by the Arab Spring and other movements for social justice. The book has been described by U.S. Poet Laureate Emeritus Juan Felipe Herrera thus: “I celebrate “Nazaré” for its power, tenderness, and transcendence. A rare, ground-shaking novel,” and by American Book Award winner Daniel Chacón: “This brilliant novel will earn JJ Amaworo Wilson a spotlight on the main stage of world fiction.”
