Lesley Nneka Arimah, the author of the award-winning short story collection What it Means When a Man Falls from the Sky, was born in the UK and grew up wherever her father was stationed for work, which was sometimes Nigeria, sometimes not.

Her work has received grants and awards from Commonwealth Writers, AWP, the Elizabeth George Foundation, the Jerome Foundation and others, and has been published in The New YorkerHarper's, and Granta. She was recently named one of the National Book Foundation's "Five Under 35," an honor given yearly to the nation's most promising young writers of fiction. She currently lives in Minneapolis.

This event is a program of the Emerging Writers Series, which is funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the Natioinal Endowment for the Humanities.
