Kenyan writers Ndiritu Wahome and Ciku Kimeria will be the authors who will be discussing their books at the “Conversation with African writers” series at the Goethe Institut in Nairobi on Thursday March 19th. They will be facilitated by facilitated by Khainga O’ Okwemba.
I’ve talked about Ciku Kimeria on this blog before. She is the author who has been doing her darnedest to market her debut novel Of goats and poisoned oranges a tantalizing tale of betrayal, deceit, greed, corruption, love and revenge that will leave you reeling. Her efforts have seen her showing her work in Uganda and in West Africa, Ghana and Nigeria to be precise.
Then there is Ndiritu Wahome whose contribution to the African literature lexicon is “The sad artist and other fairy tales.” I interviewed him last year and he turned out to be quite the philosopher writer.
Then there is Khainga O’Okwemba. He is a Kenyan poet, journalist, writer of fiction, and critic – Khainga Okwemba. I have talked about his work here.
So these three folks will be talking books and you know you want in on the action. The best thing about is that the first 100 people to rsvp to the event starting at 6pm will be eligible for a KES 100 discount on the book price at the event.
