Next week there are three bookish events taking place in Accra, and even two of them take place on the same day!
The first is actually being advertised as a “public unveiling” – which is slightly strange term, at least when applied to a book. I guess I would associate that more in connection with a tombstone, but then language does change. This is for Nana Kobina Nketsia V’s African culture in governance and development.
The second is the launch of another book by Ivor Agyeman-Duah, which I look forward to, since I’ve known him, and tracked his progress for many years. His book is titled Africa: A miner’s canary into the 21st century.
Interestingly the first two are both taking place at the British Council here in Accra. Given that both these authors are rather well connected, I suspect the venue will be full.
And finally Malaka Grant, a blogger I follow – she blogs at Mind of Malaka – is reading from her recently published book, Daughters of Swallows. I think this should be fun.
Selfishly I hope that there will be copies of the books available for purchase, and at a reasonable price!
