The 31st Annual Brady Author's Symposium on Thursday, March 23 featured author Laila Lalami. Lalami was born and raised in Morocco, a place whose past and present permeate her writing. A novelist, short story writer and essayist, Lalami is a unique and confident voice in the conversations about race and immigration that increasingly occupy our national attention. Lalami's books include Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits, Secret Son, and The Moor’s Account, a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
