This Sunday, on the Eve of Ghanaian Literature Week

Tomorrow, November 11, marks the start of Ghanaian Literature Week.  I will focus on literature from Ghana and on other Ghanaian literary and bookish issues.  My plan for this year includes:

  • Ghanaian stories for Short Monday
  • Reviews of works by Kojo Laing, Efua Sutherland and Boakyewaa Glover
  • Focus on the poetry of Kofi Awoonor
  • A look at the state of Children’s literature in Ghana
  • A side eye to Ghanaian non-readers
  • A giveaway or two.
  • Guest posts (Please let me know if you’d like to post on this blog during the week)

It should be fun.  As happens a lot on this blog, specific plans are subject to change!

Do join in if you can.  The full post on the “rules” of participation here: Ghana Lit Week.

It’s ten days into this National (US) Blog Posting Month, NaBloPoMo and I’m already behind by two days.  All I can say is that it takes a lot of planning (pre and post) and execution of those plans to succeed at the daily posting thing.  It’s early days though and I may still prevail!

Happy reading and do drop by sometime during next week’s celebrations.
