Normalise! African Literature in Focus
Thursday 31st October 2019
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Gower Street
Join us for an evening of thought provoking literary discussions in honour of Africa’s literary history.
At the end of Black History Month, authors Sulaiman Addonia (Silence Is My Mother Tongue, The Consequences of Love), Leye Adenle (When Trouble Sleeps, Easy Motion Tourist), and Ola Awonubi (Naija Love Stories, Love’s Persuasion) will be discussing the role of African literature in History, its role in the world literary canon, and the ways in which we can normalise the presence of works by African authors in the global mainstream.
The panel discussion will be followed by ample time to buy books and get them signed.
This event is brought to you by Waterstones Gower Street and Literandra, in honour of Libreria Ghana, a library that brings culturally relevant literature to the local population in Accra and other communities in Ghana.
Ticket are priced at £10 / £8 students and Plus cardholders, and include a glass of wine or a soft drink
