We are pleased to announce the Fall 2021 First Pages book, Transcendent Kingdom, by Yaa Gyasi.
The child of Ghanaian immigrants, Gifty is a sixth-year Ph.D. candidate at the prestigious Stanford University School of Medicine. Her research involves the neuroscience of reward-seeking behavior in mice, and its connection to depression and addiction. However, when her mother slips into a depressive episode that leaves her bedridden, Gifty must come to terms with her family’s past, the loss of a brother to drug addiction, and a childhood faith whose promises remain elusive and unfulfilled.
Transcendent Kingdom is a powerful and transformative story about identity, family, the mystery of the human mind, and humanity’s enduring project of unlocking those mysteries through faith and science.
This year, Author Yaa Gyasi will be virtually present at Northeastern University on Wednesday, September 8, 2020, 8:00pm to speak to the incoming class. This is a mandatory event for all new students. Information about this virtual event will be available in Welcome Week and other university materials distributed during Move-In.
