Kwani to celebrate 10 years

Kwani to celebrate 10 years through book party

In Celebration of Kwani Trust’s 10 Years; Kwani is holding a Book Party.

The book party will take the form of a joint Kenyan launch of the novels: Dust by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor (Kenya) and Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Nigeria)—Friday 29th November at the Marshall’s Service Workshop/Warehouse from 8.00 p.m.

Dust is a novel about a splintered family in Kenya and the ‘strugglination’ around it—a story of power, deceit and survival, grief and madness, unrequited love, sacrifice and perseverance.

Chimamanda’s new novel Americanah is a story of love and race, centred around a young man and woman from Nigeria who face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home.

WILL FEATURE VISUAL ARTS

The Book Party also features a 10-year visual art retrospective of Kenyan art featuring work by Wangechi Mutu (celebrated Kenyan artist based in the US), curated by Mbithi Masya (of Just A Band).

The art installation reflects on a shared sensibility between photographers, writers and other artists.

Live music & top DJs will follow thereafter.
