Evening of Uncertainty

In Books, Literature, The Uncertainty of Hope, Writing on September 17, 2008 at 5:04 pm

Readers and writers who will be in Harare tomorrow might be interested to know that Pamberi Trust and The Book Cafe will be hosting a literary discussion on The Uncertainty of Hope.

The event starts at 5.30 pm and will run til 7.00 pm. Admission is free and open to all.

I am told that guest speakers will include Mai Ruby Magosvongwe.

Penny Yon, one of the event’s coordinators, says the September 18 literary discussion will explore the central issues raised by The Uncertainty of Hope as well as the significance of these issues in contemporary Zimbabwe.

“The value of literature,” she says, “is that it reflects aspects of society and allows deeper scrutiny of lives that may otherwise be impenetrable to readers.”

The event is part of the Pamberi Trust literary discussions that have been taking place at The Book Café for a number of years now.

The discussions bring together readers and writers from across the city and are supported by Weaver Press, Pamberi Trust’s Communications project and the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
