Currell College Auditorium
Oct 13, 2009
Masha Hamilton is the author of four acclaimed novels, most recently 31 Hours (2009), an Indie Choice pick by independent booksellers, which Publisher’s Weekly called gorgeous and complex. Hamilton is also the founder of two world literacy programs: the Camel Book Drive, begun in 2007 to supply a camel-borne library in northeastern Kenya, and the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, begun in 2009 to foster creative and intellectual exchange between Afghan women writers and American women authors and teachers. As a journalist, she has worked for the Associated Press, the Los Angeles Times and others, reporting from the Middle East, Russia, Africa and Afghanistan.
