July 3-5 is the date to mark on your calendar if you live in London or happen to be there. Ben Okri is billed to headline two days of events celebrating African literature. There will be book launches, readings, author appearances, panel discussions to delight fans of African writing.
Most of the events will take place at the British Library.
Frances Mensah Williams’ novel From Pasta to Pigfoot will be launched. Don’t miss the chance to see her chat with the lovely Margaret Busby about her Uk-Ghana romance novel.
Okri’s keynote lecture is definitely one to attend. He is an impassioned speaker and always has very smart things to say about literature and life. There is a ten-pound admission fee for Okri’s talk, but most of the other events are free!
