African literary festivals you can attend in 2017

It is an open secret that the literary scene is Africa is booming. From the south till the north. From the east till the west. People come together to talk about literature at festivals, they meet writers and editors and publishers. Readers buy books and are inspired to even write themselves. A festival is a good way for writers to meet their audience. 

James Murua has been so kind to list the festivals to be held in the 2017. Read the longlist or shortlist here
