Using a novel as a launching pad, Ticket To… explores a nation through its history, cuisine and culture at The Greene Space in New York City.
This month, we travel to Rwanda through the lens of Scholastique Mukasonga’s Our Lady of the Nile. Twenty five years after one of the most devastating genocides in history, the novel sends us to an all girls boarding school in Rwanda and initiates a conversation about the racial tensions and post-colonial political landscape that turned neighbor against neighbor, schoolchild against schoolchild.
The evening will include a discussion, a taste of a Rwandan delicacy and a live performance. Guests to be announced.
Reading the assigned novel in advance of the event is highly recommended, but not at all required to enjoy the show.
Purchase tickets here.
The event is available as a livestream.
