Namwali Serpell has announced a number book events in the US, the UK, Germany, and Zambia.

The Zambian-American writer is fast becoming the toast of the literary world. Her debut novel, Old Drift, was published on March 26, and the buzz around the book is gaining some serious momentum.

Apparently, Salman Rushdie loves it so much that he is writing a review for the New York Times. Serpell is not sleeping on this momentum, as the impressive line up of events on her tour schedule shows. She is ready to hit the road and share insights about the book with readers and fans.

A few stops of note on her tour include San Fransico’s City Light Bookstore, which has hosted many African writers over the decades. She is also making a stop at the Africa Writes Book Festival in the Uk and the African Book Festival in Berlin in April.

She has dates lined up from March all the way to August. If your city is one of the lucky stops on her itinerary, make sure to pop in and say hi.

If you don’t see your city on the list, stay tuned. Serpell might add more dates. You never know. So follow her on Twitter at @namwalien for updates.
