Georgia State University will host five authors this semester in a series called Five From Five. Writers from Brazil, China, Korea, South Africa, and Turkey, will visit Atlanta during spring 2014 to read from their work and engage audiences in discussion. The titles by each of the featured authors are available in the University Library. The Five from Five authors tell stories through memoir, novel, and nonfiction, drawing history into narrative, giving names, places, and emotions to the broad sweep of historic events. Each author will also have a humanities scholar host who is responsible for welcoming the guest, introducing the event, and guiding the question and answer period. Authors featured include:
- February 7, 2014 – CHINA: Da Chen. Colors of the Mountain
- February 21, 2014 – BRAZIL: Edgard T. Ribeiro. I Would Have Loved Him, If I Had Not Killed Him
- March 7, 2014 – KOREA: Therese Park. The Northern Wind: Forced Journey to North Korea
