Sulaiman Addonia’s Silence Is My Mother Tongue hit the book stands a few days ago. Last week, loved ones and well-wishers gathered at London’s Vout-O-Reenee’s to celebrate the release of the new novel. The book launch also doubled as the celebration of Indigo Press’s one year birthday. How fitting!

Silence Is My Mother Tongue is one of the three releases on Indigo Press’s debut catalogue. The novel tells the story of a young woman’s attempt to find herself and carve out a space of existence in an East African refugee camp.

Ellah Wakatama Allfrey, Indigo Press’s Publishing Director, worked on the book as editor. She was, of course, at the book launch. The joy and excitement of celebrating with Addonia and Indigo Press is palpable in the photos. The radiant smiles are clear proof that the event was a big success.
