Hello Brittle Paperians,

We have enjoyed every moment spent keeping you informed about the African literary scene. As the year winds down, we want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us. We have also thoroughly enjoyed helping readers navigate the book scene. Between book news, book lists, and book reviews, we featured over 400 books this year. African book publishing both on the continent and abroad is growing, and we proudly take on the challenge of keeping you up-to-date.

While we look forward to what 2023 will bring, we will be taking 8 days off to recharge. We will be back on January 4.

In the meantime, enjoy our anthology of  festive African writing and our 100 Notable African Books of the Year. Follow this link to read more stories and poetry. If you’re curious about the major trends in African literature, go here. We rounded up some of the stories we covered about African writers becoming parents, getting married, and so on. Check out the heartwarming list here.

Happy holidays and a Happy New Year to all our readers. See you in 2023!

Dr. Ainehi Edoro
