Amherst’s literary festival is upon us once again. From March 1-3, literary figures — including winners of and finalists for the National Book Award — will convene on campus to hold discussions and readings. This year’s program will be capped by the event “Ngũgĩ@80: This Time Tomorrow,” which will feature a reading from renowned writer Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, followed by a Q&A led by Amherst’s Peter Kimani, a visiting writer and professor at the college.
