africa reading group

The Africa Reading Group has been going on for sometime at the Africa Book Centre in Covent Garden, London, coordinated by a nice lady called Saara. With the books now done as mail order from Bristol, things are changing at No.38 King Street, and the Reading Group is now meeting at new venues - still in the Covent Garden area.

The Africa Reading Group meets once a month to discuss an African related book. Here are details of the next few meetings:

Non Fiction Meeting: Monday 13th February, 6:30pm - discussing The Green Belt Movement By Wangari Maathai, Winner of the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.

Fiction Meeting: Monday 27th of February, 6:30pm - discussing The Icarus Girl by Helen Oyeyemi.


Helen Oyeyemi

Venue for these meetings will be in the Progresso Coffee shop in Tomas Neal's Centre (downstairs in the mall), Covent Garden, London

Upcoming books for discussion by the Africa Reading Group include Graceland by Chris Abani, The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G Vassanji, King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild and The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon.
