New Daughters of Africa

Event details here.

Be there for the launch of Margaret Busby’s major new global anthology of writing by women of African descent, New Daughters of Africa.

Twenty-five years ago, Busby’s anthology Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim and hailed as ‘an extraordinary body of achievement... a vital document of lost history’ (Sunday Times), and ‘the ultimate reference guide’ (Washington Post).

New Daughters of Africa builds on this rich tradition for a new generation of women writers in the landscape of African women’s writing today. A glorious portrayal of the accomplishments of over 200 contributors, New Daughters of Africa celebrates their global sweep, diversity and achievements, while also testifying to a wealth of genres.
