What are you reading at the moment? An old favourite? A new find? An undiscovered classic? Fiction, poetry, comics or essays?
Whatever you’re reading, it’s time to shout it from the rooftops.
LAPA Publishers, Catalyst Press and Story Press Africa invite you to celebrate African literature this 2019 Reading Africa Week.
Now in its third year, the week-long social media campaign from 1 to 7 December celebrates the diversity of African literature. To join in the fun, show us what you’re reading using the hashtags #ReadingAfrica and #ReadingAfricaWeek.
‘Africa has beautiful stories to tell,’ says LAPA’s Izak de Vries. ‘From Somalia to Cape Town, Timbuktu to Maputo, Africa is bursting with stories. I urge publishers to participate. Let us share our African stories. Let us learn from each other.’
Tweet, post, share or put it on the ’Gram—we want to know the African stories that are bringing you joy.
