beyond the novel

Last month a literary event was held at the British Library in London (UK). The theme of the panel event was ‘Beyond the Novel: Developing Contemporary African Writing’. I am not very sure about the addition of ‘Contemporary’ in the title.

As far as I can see it is difficult ‘Developing Past African Writing’. There is a good chance of preparing for ‘Developing Future African Writing’. Enough words about words, for now.

Rachel Knighton was present and she wrote about the developments during the panelsession.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
