Soyinka, Le Clezio for Garden City Literary Festival
You've got to love this if you love independent literary developments in Africa, any part of Africa. This is what makes for solid traditions. Kudos to Koko Kalango for her ingenuity.
Okay, read this.
"Nobel Laureates Wole Soyinka and J.M.G Le Clezio are the headliners of the third Garden City Literary Festival, which opens in Port Harcourt on December 8. An initiative of the Rivers State governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and organised by Koko Kolango of the Rainbow Book Club, the festival is intended “to highlight the significant contribution of writers to the story of African nations.”
