at 10:00 AM

Acclaimed writer Aminatta Forna grew up in the war-torn Western African country of Sierra Leone -- and she has made a career of writing about it. Her newest novel "The Memory of Love" wrestles with questions such as how one survives in a country smothered by brutality. Forna's other books include "The Devil That Danced on the Water," a memoir about her father and his activism in Sierra Leone.
