Hardship As A Launch Pad

Bed-bound, paralyzed from the waist down, Nnedi Okorafor woke up from what was supposed to be minimally-invasive surgery with her life upside down. Her recovery meant periods of hallucinations, nightmares, as well as a re-examination of her very identify. Okorafor, an acclaimed science fiction and fantasy author, brings her personal story to the page in her new book, “Broken Place and Outer Spaces,” which she discusses with guest host Courtney Collins.
