“Le salon africain” at the Geneva Book Fair

I’ll be appearing at the 28th Geneva Book and Press Fair, 30 April – 4 May, as part of the “Salon africain” programme:

“White and black, English- and French-speaking, insular and continental, from here, there and everywhere…  every facet of Africa will be converging on Geneva this spring. Including the Africa of the great classic texts … But also the Africa of unmissable new talent, first novels, essayists, polemicists and poets … there will be debates, discussions, readings and even dining. It will also be a chance to discover works that have not been published in Europe, whether on the bookshop shelves or on the stands of African publishers.”

Looking forward to my two panels:

Fri 2 May: 14:45 – 15:30   ”La fiction en noir et blanc”, with Léonora Mian

Sat 3 May: 14:45 – 15:30   ”Zoom sur les lettres anglophones”, with Helon Habila and Nii Ayikwei Parkes

The Salon coincides with the launch of my novel Ninive in French.
