Samek Gallery, 3rd Floor ELC
Join us in our Samek Gallery reading room for a discussion of Junot Díaz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which chronicles the life of self-described “Ghetto Nerd” Oscar as he deals with the effects of an intergenerational family curse. Copies of the novel are available now at the Bucknell Campus Bookstore and wherever books are sold. This discussion will explore themes raised in both the novel and the Samek Art Museum’s special exhibition, Afrotechtopia. Refreshments will be provided.
