Faith Adiele is the author of Meeting Faith (W.W. Norton & Co.), a travel memoir about becoming Thailand’s first black Buddhist nun. Meeting Faith received the PEN Beyond Margins Award for Best Memoir of 2004.
Adiele is the coeditor of Coming of Age Around the World: A Multicultural Anthology (The New Press) and the writer, narrator, and subject of the PBS documentary My Journey Home, which is based on her (Obama-esque!) life growing up with a Nordic-American single mother and then traveling to Nigeria as an adult to find her father and siblings.
