RadioBook Rwanda

BAM and Center for Fiction celebrate the work of RadioBook Rwanda in this discussion that explores the work of three young Rwandan fiction writers: Mutsinzi Eric, Annick La Reine Shimwa, and Jimmy Tuyiringire. Although different in style, their works share common themes: relationships, resistance, and modern myths. Three creative voices of different disciplines will read from the stories and address the larger themes through the lens of their own work and practice. A moderated conversation will follow along with questions from the audience. Copies of the three RadioBook Rwanda publications—otherwise not available in the US—will be available for purchase on site. RadioBook Rwanda is a new multimedia literary imprint, showcasing Rwandan and East African creative voices. The imprint is the brainchild of three publishers: Huza Press (Rwanda), Kwani Trust (Kenya), and No Bindings (UK). It draws on inspiration and editorial expertise from Kwani Trust’s Kwanini series, while opening up new audiences for Rwandan writers published by Huza Press through No Bindings’ innovative approaches to form and community publishing.
