Letras Africanas: Tanella Boni

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 Palma de Mallorca 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.
For 2010, the first guest author is Tanella Boni, from the Ivory Coast, who will visit Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca as part of the 2nd edition of the África Vive festival, organised by Casa África.

Led by the novelist Antonio Lozano, this literary conference will take place on May 5 in the Sala Centro Sa Nostra (Centro Cultura Sa Nostra, C/Concepció 12, Palma de Mallorca 07012, Mallorca) at 8:0 pm. This edition will include the presence of Tanella Boni, from the Ivory Coast, who will discuss her life and work with attendees. Admission is free and open to all, until capacity is reached.
