    Kwani? Is the thing. I really liked the first publication. Kudos for providing a channel for “informal” literary discourse.

  • Hey, i wish i was in town for that event. Dammit

    Have you heard of an upcoming publisher called storymoja . Theyve posted posters and ads in the Daily Nation asking for guyz to write stories aand i think its a good way of encouraging upcoming kenyan writers . I think its a good thing to support and mentor them ama?

    Just received a newsletter from Books First. Apparently you can now buy books from Books First online on their ecommerce website http://www.booksfirst.co.ke from anywhere in Kenya and they will deliver. Actually the books are cheaper than in the stores which are mostly in nairobi anyway. I found “Dreams From My Father” “unbowed” and lots of management books on the website with payment methods being mpesa, cash, bank deposit and cheques even. Maybe soon they may consider accepting credit cards too.

    Definitely worth checking out for booklovers.
