Ghana Lit Week 2 Wrap Up (hosted by Kinna)
Today is the final day in Kinna’s second annual Ghanaian Literature Week. It was, if I may say so, a huge success! Kinna organized it perfectly, there were a ton of fantastic posts to read, and a great twitter chat as well. To see all posts as part of the project you can check out her central post.
Personally I read a number of books that I had been holding on to in anticipation of this event. I read:
- The Housemaid by Amma Darko
- Two Thousand Seasons by Ayi Kwei Armah
- The Other Crucifix by Benjamin Kwakye
- African Love Stories edited by Ama Ata Aidoo (which contained a short story by Yaba Badoe)
- Dilemma of a Ghost and Anowa by Ama Ata Aidoo
In addition to reading these books, other reviewers convinced me to pick up a number of new Ghanaian books on my Kindle which I look forward to reading and reviewing in the following weeks. I have a few more books with me on this trip, so Ghanaian Literature Week for me may spill over a bit (Beginning with a review of The Chicken Thief by Fiona Leonard tomorrow.) Some of the other Kindle acquisitions may be stored for next year, if I can wait that long…
Thank you again to Kinna of Kinna Reads for hosting this event again, and I look forward to the same next year!
