A day celebrating contemporary writing in French from West Africa

Some of the most important contemporary writing in French has emerged from West Africa. This event brings together authors (including leading writer from the Côte d’Ivoire, Véronique Tadjo), publishers, translators and other specialists to explore topics including the history of the Francophone West African book as well as the complex processes of translation between oral and literary cultures and across various other linguistic, historical and political contexts.
