Book Launch of Mogadishu Then & Now by Rasna Warah, Mohamud Diros & Ismail Osman
Presentation by Rasna Warah
The launch coincides with the closing of the exhibition Gates by Deqa Abshir
Rasna Warah is a Daily Nation columnist and co-author of Mogadishu Then and Now: A Pictorial Tribute to Africa’s Most Wounded City.
Red Soil and Roasted Maize is a selection of Kenyan writer Rasna Warah’s most poignant, introspective and satirical articles, columns and essays that provide snapshots and analyses of events that have shaped Kenyans’ lives and dreams in the last decade, from the turbulent transition to democracy in 2002 to a flawed election in 2007 that had a deep impact on Kenya’s political, economic and social landscape. She candidly deciphers and describes the perils of growing ethnic chauvinism and corruption in an increasingly polarised nation and examines her own life as a writer in one of Africa’s most diverse and unequal societies.
Red Soil and Roasted Maize is now out and available at Bookstop in Yaya Centre and online. It is also available as an e-book and on Amazon.
This Saturday, from 11 am till 1 p.m. Rasna Warah will be at the Bookshop, Yaya Centre for a book signing, along with other Kenyan writers.
