Reading Group in Mzilikazi Library

'amaBooks has facilitated a reading group project in Bulawayo, in conjunction with three local organisations, one of which is Youths for Today and Tomorrow. Each of the groups has been given copies of Christopher Mlalazi's Dancing with Life: Tales from the Township to read and discuss, and copies of other books will be given later. The project is supported by the Public Affairs section of the US Embassy to Zimbabwe.

On 17 March, representatives from the Embassy visited a group of young women from Youths for Today and Tomorrow who were meeting at the Mzilikazi Library in Bulawayo. As well as discussing the book, the group were inspired by many of the examples in the presentation by Amy Diaz from the Embassy entitled Iron Butterflies: Women Who Defied Their Time, about women who had made major contributions to the advancement of their society from the time of the pharoahs to the present.
