Hi all,

Let's launch a new book club before enjoying an afrofuturist dance tale.

Part 1 : 3 pm to 4.50 pm : launching our book club

The idea is to read and discuss books written by African authors in French or in English. There will be sci-fi, comics, detective novels, novels, poetry, essays, short stories, multi-generational sagas, political novels, ghosts, infertility, coups, occupations and migration stories. And of course, books can be about anything, there is no such thing as African authors writing only about the African continent.

For our first meeting, I propose a book in French: Rouge impératrice by Leonora Miano (no English translation yet but of course discussion about the book can be in English and/or French).

The purpose of this first meeting will be to discuss the book of course AND to agree on what we'd like this club to be (proposals from members, votes, frequency etc).

The only rule that is not negotiable will be the parity. We'll read female and male writers.

Part 2 : 5 to 6 pm : enjoying an afrofuturist dance tale

After our meeting at 5 pm, we can enjoy the show Bikutsi Protected content those available. Buy your ticket here :
