Writer for April - Kofi Akpabli


The Writers Project of Ghana and the Goethe Institute presents Kofi Akpabli as guest writer for the eighth reading in the Ghana Voices Series. These monthly book readings give you a chance to meet, read and hear Ghanaian writers.

Kofi Akpabli is a freelance journalist and skilled writer and will read to us from his debut work of creative non-fiction, A Sense of Savannah- Tales of a Friendly Walk through Northern Ghana. The 150 page glossy book is a collection of travel articles depicting the culture, tourism and landscape of the three Northern Regions. Kofi Akpabli is the CNN/Multichoice African Journalist for Arts and Culture and also the Ghana Journalists Association’s 2010 Best Journalist for Arts and Tourism.

The Ghana Voices Series provides a platform to explore the synchrony between the literary arts and societal change in Ghana. We invite readers to follow this oral anthology as we bring together the treasure of our literary heritage. Kofi Akpabli shares with us in a relaxed ambience, his tales following which the floor will be open for discussions.
