National Writers Series Presents

An Evening with Sofia Al-Khan

Nov 15, 2022

In “A Good Country,” take a ride with the National Writers Series on a literary road trip through twelve American towns with author Sofia Ali-Khan, as she excavates the history of forced migration in the places she’s called home, revealing how white supremacy has fundamentally shaped the nation.

We’ll also unearth the half-buried histories of forced migration that still shape every state, town, and reservation in America today. Equal parts memoir, history, and current events, A Good Country presents a vital portrait of our nation, its people, and the pathway to a better future.
