Teju Cole has a pretty booked up 2018, which is good news to our ears. It means that Brittle Paper readers have more opportunities to attend one of his events.

Cole’s calendar of events shows him visiting lots of American cities, from NYC to Winston Salem in North Carolina. But there are a few international events. In April, he will be in Bogota, Toronto in May, Brussels, Milan, and Zurich in June.

See the full list of his engagements and mark your calendar for the date he comes by your city or someplace close by.

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
