African Writers’ Evening (AWE) is one of the main regular events that is held every two months at the Poetry Cafe in London, last month the event celebrated its fifth anniversary, and next Thursday 17th July it begins its sixth year by inviting me to read some of my works (poems, short stories):

“African Writers’ Evening Thursday July 17, 2008: Ghazi Gheblawi & Saradha Soobrayen
We usher summer in with a little bit of desert and a little bit of island. Reading for us will be blogger, poet, translator and short story writer Ghazi Ghablawi (Libya) and emerging poet and editor Saradha Soobrayen (Mauritius). As both featured authors are multilingual, there is at least a small chance of tantalising excerpts in French or Arabic. Ghanaian author, Nii Ayikwei Parkes, will host.”

So, if you are in London and have spare time to listen to some words and get to know other African writers it will be great to have you at the Poetry Cafe 17th July 2008 (7.30pm):
