African Letters: Alain Mabanckou in Madrid

El 17 de septiembre de 2013 a las 20:15h en Casa África, en el marco del SILA
Letras Africanas

Alain Mabanckou, a Congolese writer with many awards, will be in Spain as part of African Letters, a Casa África programme that was created in 2009  to bring the Spanish public closer to the main voices of contemporary African literature

Literature is without a doubt one of the essential ways of bringing us closer to the African continent's social, political and cultural reality. However a Spanish reader's access to that literary production is very limited, for reasons such as translation and the lack of inclusion into our country's book market.

With this project Casa África wants to contribute in remedying this shortage, by helping several the continent's most important writers to appear in several Spanish cities, giving special priority to authors published in the .

This way, African Letters has allowed authors like Henri Lopes (Democratic Republic of Congo), Germano Almeida ( Cape Verde), Fatou Diome (Senegal), Moussa Konaté (Mali), Tanella Boni (Ivory Coast), María Nsue (Equatorial Guinea, Veronique Tadjo (Ivory Coast), Achmat Dangor (South Africa), Abasse Ndione (Senegal), Jamal Mahjoub (Sudan), Boubacar Boris Diop (Senegal), Fatou Diome (Senegal) or Emmanuel Dongala (Congo) to appear in Spain.

Now it is Alain Mabanckou's turn, author of Mañana cumpliré 20 años, a book published by  Casa África as part of its Literature Collection and as part of African Letters will be at Casa Árabe (C/. Alcalá, 62. Madrid) on 1st June at 19:30h.
