Letras Africanas (African Letters): Abasse Ndione in León and Salamanca

El 14 de octubre en Salamanca y el 15 en León
Letras Africanas: Achmat Dangor

The Casa África Letras Africanas (African Letters) programme aims to bring the leading voices of contemporary African literature closer to Spanish audiences, and on this occasion, it travels to Canarias for 'África Vive 2010.'

Literature is, without a doubt, one of the indispensable ways for bringing us closer to the African continent´s social, political and cultural reality. However, access of Spanish readers to that enormous and extremely rich literary production is very limited, for reasons related to its translation and its scarce integration into our country´s book market.

Through this project, Casa África aims to remedy this gap, from a dual line of action:  to facilitate the presence in various Spanish cities of the continent´s most famous writers, and to promote the reading of some of the works by these authors in the cities they visit.

Throughout 2009, Letras Africanas (African Letters) made possible the presentation of several African authors in various Spanish cities: Germano Almeida in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife; Fatou Diome in Seville and Cádiz;  Moussa Konaté in Barcelona, and Amma Darko in Oviedo and Bilbao.

In 2010, we have had the pleasure of welcoming Tanella Boni in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, María Nsue in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Tenerife, Veronique Tadjo in Vitoria, Bilbao and Santiago de Compostela, and we now welcome Abasse Ndione, a Senegalese writer of titles that include Ramata and La vida en espiral (Life in a Spiral), will visit the cities of León and Salamanca at the hand of Casa África and its Letras Africanas (African Letters) programme.

The 2010 Letras Africanas (African Letters) programming will conclude with this black literature author from Senegal.  Abasse Ndione will appear:
