African Letters: Emmanuel Dongala in Madrid and Granada

27th in Madrid and 28th in Granada
Letras Africanas

The Casa África Letras Africanas (African Letters) programme aims to bring the leading voices of contemporary African literature closer to Spanish audiences.

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, Jamal Mahjoub in the cities of Barcelona and Valencia, Boubacar Boris Diop in Canary Islands and Cádiz and Fatou Diome in san Sebastian. Now we welcome Emmanuel Dongala in Madrid and Granada.

Emmanuel Dongala, novelist, writer of Congolese stories and author of El fuego de los orígenes (a book published by Casa África as part of its Literature Collection) will be in:

  • Madrid: 27th March 2012, from 12:00 to 13:30 at the Video Hall I, Módulo II of the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts at the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid
  • Granada: 28th March 2012 from 13:00 to 14:30 in Hall 10 of the Translation and Interpretation Faculty of the University of Granada
