The Writers Project of Ghana (WPG) Book Discussion Club, a monthly book club, has selected the novel A Question of Power by South African writer, Bessie Head, as the book for their May discussion at the University of Ghana campus. The discussion is scheduled for Tuesday, 28 May 2013, from 6.00 PM to 7.00 PM.
Information available to Creative Writing Ghana indicates that the WPG is in the final stages of holding discussions on social media platforms on books selected by the Book Discussion Club. The discussion will start with Twitter most likely this month, ahead of the main discussion on 28 May. The official Twitter account of WPG – @writersPG – as well as the hashtag #wpgbookclub, will be used to coordinate the discussion. We expect the group to announce a date for discussion on the novel so be on the look out.
The Book Discussion Club is a closed event because of its nature; however, it is open to all readers to join the discussion at the Legon campus of the University of Ghana. Earlier this year, the Book Discussion Club launched an initiative to use Skype (add wpgbookclub) as an additional tool in order to expand the discussion to online platforms and to reach readers who would wish to participate, but cannot be physically present.
To join the discussion of A Questions of Power, email the coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org . You can pick up copies of the novel at the University of Ghana bookshop or on Amazon and join the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #wpgbookclub or tweet your thoughts and comments at the WPG account @writersPG .
