The Reading Club at the University of Cádiz reads Aïda Mady Diallo

On 20th March 2013 at the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts.
Casa África colabora con el club de lectura de la Universidad de Cádiz

Casa África, in its function of bringing Africa and Spain closer together through vehicles such as culture and the promotion of the very vast literary production of the African continent, once again collaborates with the Department of French and English Philology at the University of Cádiz who has chosen to read the work Kuty, memoria de sangre, from the writer from Mali Aïda Mady Diallo. Casa África has provided 44 copies for the members of this reading club who will debate on this work on 20th March  2013 starting at 13:00h.

The work selected belongs to Casa África's Literature Collection, which in collaboration with Ediciones El Cobre-El Aleph, aims to translate the most important titles in African literature into Spanish, not only those from well established writers but also those that are just emerging.

Kuty, Memoria de Sangre starts off in Gao (Mali) on the 6th March 1984, when the village is attacked by a band of Tuareg raiders. Kuty's family, she is a 10 year old girl, is massacred in front of her eyes by four men who throw her against a wall and slit her father's throat whilst he sees how they rape his wife, Kuty's mother, who later commits suicide by setting herself on fire. Kuty, memoria de sangre is the story of this girl's long vengeance. It is also a part of Africa's history who during a long time saw how the black population was captured and sold as slaves by the men from the desert. It is also the first thriller written by a young female African writer who transmits to us through her emotions the story of all of a generation that fought for freedom.
