Today, I am going to the 9th Ghana International Book Fair, taking place at the Trade Fair in Accra.
There I’ll be meeting up with Sara and Styrbjörn from Swedish publisher Tranan which publishes African writers in Swedish. I will also meet their counterpart in Ghana, Akos from Sub-Saharan Publishers and hopefully also have some time to browse around and buy some books. Maybe even run in to my colleague Accra Books and Things!
This weekend, the Book Fair in collaboration with Tranan will hold some interesting workshops, one on Creative writing that I plan to attend.
I feel so lucky to know these interesting people and to be able to experience Ghana’s own book fair, because what is better than books?
