The Writers Project of Ghana and the Goethe Institute present Ghanaian-American writer, Malaka Grant, as guest writer for the regular monthly reading series, Ghana Voices Series. The event comes off at the Goethe Institute in Cantonments, Accra (near NAFTI) on 27 November, 2013 from 7 PM – 8 PM.
Malaka’s first novel, The Daughters of Swallows (CreateSpace, 2013), is a fictional account of three women in Ghana who struggle with desire, ability, and promise in their lives. The author wrote this novel with the intention to “spark conversation and provoke thought, and… have people look at African women and their experiences in a wider [focus]…”.
The reading is the last for the calendar year and will return next year in March 2014. From all indications, it is also the last free, public book reading you will get in Ghana for 2013. The event starts on time so please endeavour to be there on time. The novel, The Daughters of Swallows will be available for sale at the reading as well. It is also available on amazon.
