Green Lion to make first appearance at Franschhoek Lit Fest, 15-17 May

flfJust a quick reminder that the always-excellent Franschhoek Literary Festival is coming up soon, 15-17 May. It’s a great line-up. I’m particularly excited because it will be the first outing for my new novel, Green Lion.

I’ll be in two panels, alongside some wonderful writers:

Prizing African Writing – Fri May 15, 14.30- 15.30:

SA Sunday Times books editor Ben Williams asks prize-winning authors Diane Awerbuck (Cabin Fever, Home Remedies), Helon Habila (Oil on Water, Granta Book of the African Short Story 2013 – editor) and Henrietta Rose-Innes (Green Lion) what literary prizes mean for African writers both on this continent and internationally.

Hello World, Africa Here – Sat May 16 , 13:00 – 14:00:

How do African writers make their mark on the international market? Harry Garuba discusses the challenges faced by Ekow Duker, Masande Ntshanga (The Reactive) and Henrietta Rose-Innes.
