Laila Lalami is a once Seattle, now Los Angeles-based novelist, essayist, and critic. She's written four novels, her last, The Moor's Account, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her latest, just released, is The Other Americans. She'll be reading next Tuesday, April 2, at the Central Seattle Public Library at 7:00pm, co-presented with the Elliott Bay Book Company. This is one you won't want to miss, and it's free to attend.
