New Daughters of Africa at The London Book Fair


Editor of just-published New Daughters of Africa, Margaret Busby will be in conversation with authors Ellah Wakatama Allfrey, Chibundu Onuzo and Irenosen Okojie at this year’s London Book Fair.

Showcasing the work of more than 200 women writers of African descent, this major international collection celebrates their contributions to literature and international culture. Ellah, Margaret, Irenosen and Chibundu will discuss how they contributed to the title, as well as how incredibly important New Daughters of Africa will be for our generation and those after.

Featuring women across the diaspora, New Daughters of Africa illuminates the richness and cultural history of this original continent and its enduring influence, while reflecting our own lives and issues today. Bold and insightful, brilliant in its intimacy and universality, this essential volume honours the talents of African daughters and the inspiring legacy that connects them—and all of us.

New Daughters of Africa is available to buy now at all local booksellers. You can also buy online via the book page. You can buy tickets to the book fair via their website.
