African Letters is a Casa África programme that was founded in 2009 to bring the Spanish public nearer to the main voices of contemporary African literature. It arose from the reality of literature as one of the essential ways to approach the social, political and cultural reality of the African continent as an attempt to improve access of the Spanish reader to literature written in Africa.
