Afrolit Now is returning to Audible with Hemley Boum ‘s Little Pa translated by Edwige Dro coming out on August 11.
Afrolit Now is a series I am curating of short stories from six African writers in conjunction with Audible. Inspired by Afrolit Sans Frontières, the virtual literary festival I founded the Afrolit Now series brings to life short stories from the best in contemporary African fiction. Showcasing a wide range of countries, genres, and subjects—be it joy, heartbreak, love, or laughter—these pieces prove that a truly great story has no frontiers. Previously featured are Troy Onyango’s We Are The Water People, A Love Like This by Abubakar Adam Ibrahim and Beata Umubyeyi Mareisse’s Consolata.
Coming in August is Hemley Boum ‘s Little Pa translated by Edwige Dro. Check it when it comes out.
