Audiobook fans! Here’s some news for you. Some authors who participated in the Afrolit Sans Frontières festivals, organized by the amazing Zukiswa Wanner (the 2020 Brittle Paper African Literary Person of the Year, btw), will be making their stories available on Audible Originals from March onward.

The six authors who will be taking part in this offshoot of Afrolit Sans Frontières, titled “Six Stories from Afrolit,” are Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, Beata Umubyeyi Mairesse, Ondjaki, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi, Hemley Boum, and Wanner herself.
