Africa Reading Challenge
Kinna Reads is hosting a year-long Africa Reading Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to read
5 books. That’s it. There will be no other levels. Of course, participants are encouraged to read more than 5 books. Eligible books include those which are written by African writers, or take place in Africa, or are concerned with Africans and with historical and contemporary African issues. Note that at least 3 books must be written by African writers.
I will be participating in this Challenge. My initial list of 5 books (subject to change) is as follows:
Wives of the Leopard by Edna G. Gay
Why Are We So Blest? by Ayi Kwei Armah
Idu by Flora Nwapa
For Women and the Nation: Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti of Nigeria by Cheryl Johnson-Odom and Nina Emma Mba
Aké by Wole Soyinka
