Book Discussion – September 17: Vote for your book

August 17th, 2010

On September 17 we’ll be having a slightly different African Writers Evening; a book discussion like no other. On arrival at the discussion, each of the first 30 readers presenting their copy of the book on the evening will be given £4 towards the cost of the book. So, rather than pick the book for you, we want you to pick the book. Below is a list of the bestselling books from our recent African Book Market plus books from our most recent features – 11 books for you to choose from. At the end of August, we will end the poll to give you time to read the book before the event. We will announce the discussion leaders at the same time.
