Where to Now? Short Stories from Zimbabwe launched at Wits Writers Centre

Where to Now? Short Stories from Zimbabwe was launched at Wits University Writers Centre on August 5, as part of 'amaBooks at the Jozi Book Fair. The event was attended by an appreciative audience of over 60 people, who listened to readings from three of the writers in the book - Novuyo Rosa Tshuma from her story Crossroads, Sandisile Tshuma from her story The Need and Thabisani Ndlovu from his Making a Woman. Jane Morris read an excerpt of NoViolet Bulawayo's story from the collection Snapshots. The audience participated in a lively discussion about writing, publishing and Zimbabwe after the readings. 'amaBooks have a stand throughout the Jozi Book Fair, held at Museum Africa in Newtown from 6 - 8 August.
