Africa39 at the Southbank Centre

October 12, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

The Africa39 anthology showcases the most promising voices from Africa south of the Sahara.

Clifton Gachagua (Kenya), Nadifa Mohamed (Somalia) and Stanley Kenani (Malawi) talk about their work with the Africa39 anthology editor Ellah Allfrey and discuss the creativity and amazing writing from their region.

They are part of a selection of 39 promising writers under 40 from Africa south of the Sahara and diaspora. The Africa39 project was created by the Hay Festival and UNESCO Port Harcourt World Book Capital.

This event is also the book launch for the Africa39 anthology, which is published by Bloomsbury: 20 countries, 39 african writers and a preface by Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka.

The discussion is followed by drinks.
