Contemporary African Voices

Contemporary African Voices

Join Contemporary African Voices, Thurs., Jan. 27…

The award-winning South African writer, Rešoketšwe Manenzhe, will discuss her novel, Scatterlings. This young novelist, poet, and short story writer will be in conversation with Garvia Bailey, former CBC host, with Q&A to follow.

We can come to know a country by reading its authors. As volunteers with the Grandmothers Campaign groups in Canada, we are keenly interested in knowing the stories of the 15 sub-Saharan African countries where the Stephen Lewis Foundation partners work. At this event, we will be hearing from an author from one of those countries.

Note: Although this event has already taken place, a recording of the session is available until Feb. 10, 10 pm PST.

(When: Live On Zoom on Thurs., Jan. 27, for 1 hr 15 mins, at 10 am PST / 1 pm EST / 8 pm South African Time)
