Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers' Series, Rachel Ghansah

September 26, 2018

7:30 PM

The first guest in the 2018-19 Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers Series will feature Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, an American essayist whose work has appeared in GQ, The Paris Review, The Believer and The New York Times Magazine, among others.

“If He Hollers Let Him Go” an early essay on comedian Dave Chappelle, was a National Magazine Award finalist and has been called a classic. In 2017, her essay on James Baldwin was selected for The Best American Essays and this year, “A Most American Terrorist: The Making of Dylann Roof" won the National Magazine Award for Best Feature Writing and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing. Ghansah’s first book, The Explainers & the Explorers, is due out later this year.

In its endeavor to demonstrate the connection between art and thinking, Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers Series brings notable writers to Pitt’s main campus every year.
