Read African Books offers a place where people can come to read about the latest books, news, reviews and comment, on African publishing.
The extracts section contains samples of John Eppel and Togara Muzanenhamo's poetry from Textures. You will also find a poem from each of the poets in Textures below.
African Books Collective (ABC) was founded in 1989 by a group of African publishers to supply libraries and other book buyers worldwide with African published books. ABC was established as a 'non-profit', covering its overheads only, and remitting sales income to African publishers. On the one hand, ABC addresses the hurdles for Northern libraries in acquiring books from Africa; and on the other, strengthens African publishers by providing international exposure and valuable sales income.
Read African Books is intended to help grow awareness of the issues affecting African books and publishing - to celebrate its diversity - and to increase the visibility of African books worldwide.
