A conversation with Fr. Uwem Akpan, a Nigerian priest whose book of short stories Say You're One of Them is a 2009 Oprah Book Club selection. Akpan received his MFA from the University of Michigan in 2006 and is a former Career-in-the-Making Fellow at the U-M Institute for the Humanities. Each story in this jubilantly acclaimed collection pays testament to the wisdom and resilience of children, even in the face of the most agonizing circumstances.
