I am on page 87 of 416 of Bitter Leaf by Chioma Okereke, I am not sure if I
would carry on or not as I am stuck in the middle. Have you read it? Do you like it? Does it get better as you carry on?

I was interviewed by the Spanish Journalist Carlos Bajos Erro for Wiriko, click here to read if you missed it.

Chigozie Obioma was invited to Barcelona on the 13th of April, for a conference by CCCB Centre de Cultura Contemporànea de Barcelona, he is the author of the Fishermen; Man Booker Prize Nominee (2015), Guardian First Book Award Nominee (2015), The Centre for Fiction First Novel Prize Nominee For Longlist (2015), The FT/Oppenheimer Award for Shorlist (2015), The FT/Oppenheimer Award (2015).


I also attended Mia Couto's conference hosted by CCCB

DEBAT. La meva Àfrica Conferència de Mia Couto (VO Pt trad Ca) from CCCB on Vimeo.

 Chigozie greeting and signing his novel translated in Spanish by Siruela and in Catalan by Quaderns Crema



 Mia Couto's conference room was full, people came all the way from the Spanish capital to hear him speak.


Thank you CCCB for organizing these events, it was a great opportunity to meet these interesteing African writers, one a budding writer from Nigeria and the other one a genius in his 60s from Mozambique who has published a multitude body of works.
