GAWBOFEST Returns

The Ghana Association of Writers Book Festival is scheduled for Monday, 22 September, at the National Theatre, Accra.

The GAWBOFEST, as it is popularly nicknamed, brings together writers, publishers, readers and an array of books displayed by bookshops.

The event, which falls on a public holiday that commemorates the birthday of the first president of Ghana, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, will start at 8 in the morning and close at 5PM.

Last year, the current president of Ghana, John Mahama, read from his then newly published autobiography. We were able to grab a copy of the Caine Prize anthology. Perhaps, you can do same of this year’s version headlined by the Ghanaian story “Gonjon Pin”.

As usual, if you are able to attend, let us know what you think in the comments.
