mogadishu international book fair

This is a surprise to me. The African literary scene is full of surprises. 

There will be a bookfair in the capital city of Somalia, Mogadishu. A town that has been riddled by violence for many years. People have fled the place, moved to other places in the country or to Kenya or further abroad.

Next week words and books take centerstage. Very good!
