What is this book club about ?
Books are better appreciated when we're able to share our experience of the writing through discussion and exploration of the text. We get ideas through learning from how others see the same story. At the book club we will read an agreed book in advance and then meet at a set time to talk about it. Our aim is to enjoy the book and discussion. This is not meant to be a study group or an academic exercise.
African Violet features the shortlisted stories from the 2012 Caine Prize for African Writing, as well as stories from those attending the Caine Prize workshop.
Copies of the book are available at the Book Café bookshop, as well as the National Gallery shop, Blackstone Books and Avondale Books in Harare. In Bulawayo, copies can be found at the National Gallery shop, Induna Arts, Tendele Crafts, Best Books and Z&N bookshop.
African Violet is published in Zimbabwe by 'amaBooks. The 2013 collection, A Memory This Size, will be published by 'amaBooks in the near future.
