Hello, my name is Alexis Okeowo. I wrote a book called A MOONLESS, STARLESS SKY: Ordinary Women and Men Fighting Extremism in Africa, which won the 2018 PEN Open Book Award. I’m writing a book about Alabama for Holt.
I contributed to a National Geographic issue on gender that was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Reporting. I’ve given talks at conferences and universities, and am available for speaking engagements on extremism, conflict reporting, journalism, and other related issues. I used to live in Uganda, Mexico, and Nigeria. I now live in Brooklyn.
