Bryony Rheam's This September Sun is now in many shops around Zimbabwe, including Induna Arts, Indaba Cafe and Kingstons in Bulawayo, the Book Cafe, Avondale Bookshop and other Innov8 bookshops in Harare, and the National Gallery of Zimbabwe shops in both Bulawayo and Harare.
Brian Jones, one of the directors of ’amaBooks, presented a copy of This September Sun to Chipo Muvezwa, Programmes Officer of the Culture Fund of Zimbabwe Trust, during the presentation ceremony for the first graduates of the British Council and Culture Fund supported Creative Enterprise: Core Programme at the Holiday Inn, Bulawayo, on Friday 9 October. He described the book as ‘an impressive first novel by an accomplished writer that contains both romance and mystery.’ A copy of the ’amaBooks collection of short stories and poems by young writers, Silent Cry: Echoes of Young Zimbabwe Voices, was presented to Ignatius Mabasa, Deputy Director of the British Council, Zimbabwe, at the same event. Brian Jones thanked all the organisations that had helped ’amaBooks over the last year, including the Culture Fund, British Council, Beit Trust, HIVOS, Embassy of the United States of America and Alliance Francaise de Bulawayo.
