Writing Africa's Futures

How are today's African writers exploring new themes, techniques and genres since the first generation of literary giants: Achebe, Ngugi, Soyinka and others? Where is African writing going in the 21st century?

Each year, the Caine Prize for African Writing maps new directions in contemporary writing. Join the five authors short-listed for the 2013 prize in an in-depth discussion of the continent's flourishing literary cultures and futures.

Also taking part are distinguished authors Doreen Baingana and Zoe Wicomb, and Professors Onookome Okome and Stephanie Newall.

Although this event is free, booking is recommended.
