America is My Home: Ayad Akhtar and Ben Rhodes

Akhtar will be joined in conversation with author and former Deputy National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama Ben Rhodes to discuss the novel’s origins and themes, including the immigrant experience, the relationship between fathers and sons, racial identity, and political polarization.
