Quo Vadis Africa? Don’t miss the next Literary Crossroads event with Zukiswa Wanner and Panashe Chigumadzi

Zukiswa Wanner and Panashe Chigumadzi
Sweet MedicineLondon – Cape Town – Joburg


Zukiswa Wanner and Panashe Chigumadzi will be in Johannesburg to discuss the power of words and the words of power at a Goethe-Institut Literary Crossroads event this month.

The event will take place on Thursday, 10 March, and entrance is free.

Two extraordinary writers explore the world around them and use the various forms of literature to offer new insights into the changing landscapes around us. Poems to enter our fragile selves and its sensations of change, love and lost; prose to investigate the role of the self within the socio-intellectual as well as the economic space we inhabit. Non-fiction and journalism to hint at the paradoxes of our world, the dogmas and the pasts we are haunted by and how theses dogmas shape our presents and perceptions.

The two writers will share their texts, talk about the postcolonial spaces of today and how the world needs a change of attitudes, role models and institutions, how a writer and her world can influence what we see and how we see it.

Intellectual and entertaining at the same time, this evening will celebrate the power of the word and strong women.

Don’t miss it!
