About NOMMO Author Series

The Givens Foundation’s NOMMO African American Authors Series has become a fixture on the Twin Cities’ cultural landscape for bringing literary excellence to broad and diverse audiences. NOMMO Series events provide rare opportunities to publicly define the state of the art of African American literature and to locate the work and contributions of national as well as Twin Cities African American writers within the present authoring of our literary tradition.
