The Havoc of Choice: A Book Party! Nov. 7 2020 @ iKigai, Westlands


Date: November 7, 2020
Venue: iKigai, Westlands
Time: 4-9 pm
Tickets: KES 1,500 via Mookh

Join us for the launch of The Havoc of Choice, by Wanjiru Koinange.

The author will be in conversation with Bien-Aime Baraza.

Released in July 2020, The Havoc of Choice is a story about family, politics, and journeying through a fractured country in a delicate time. Long-held captive by her father’s shadow of corruption, Kavata has spent her life suffocated by political machinations. When her husband decides to run in the general election, these shadows threaten to consume her home. Unable to bear this darkness, Kavata plots to escape. As her family falls apart, so too does the country. In the wake of Kenya‘s post-election turmoil, Kavata and her family must find their way back to each other across a landscape of nationwide confusion, desperation and heart-rending loss.

In this title, Koinange explores the long reach and effects of colonisation and corruption within the context of a singular household and the disparate experiences of class and clan they encapsulate.

***********

Wanjiru Koinange is a writer, restorer of libraries and entrepreneur from Nairobi. She was raised on a farm on the outskirts of the city with her four siblings. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Literature from United States International University – Africa, after which she worked as a talent manager for some of East Africa’s most renowned artists and musicians – then as a festival and events manager. She then later pursued a Masters in Creative Writing from University of Cape Town.

During this time she also worked to explore how art may be used as a catalyst for social change. This was channelled through the global non-profit organisation, Africa Centre. While in Cape Town, she also served on the editorial team of Chimurenga.

Her writing has been published in several journals and magazines across the continent including Chimurenga, SlipNet and Commonwealth Writers where she served as a cultural correspondent for East and Southern Africa in 2015. Wanjiru is also the co-founder of The Book Bunk.
