Library of Congress Shares Interviews With African Writers in May for Africa Month

To celebrate Africa Month, throughout May 2022, the Library of Congress (LC) is hosting a three-part series of interviews with award-winning African writers: Nigerian-born author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, South African novelist and playwright Damon Galgut, and Tanzanian-born novelist and academic Abdulrazak Gurnah.

The LC notes, “The interviews are part of the “Conversations with African Poets and Writers Series” produced by the Library’s African and Middle Eastern Division since 2008 to promote a greater cross-cultural understanding and dialogue. The series offers a window onto African writers, from the continent and the diaspora, and features their works in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama and literary criticism.”

Each interview will be available on the LC’s YouTube channel and the African and Middle Eastern Division’s webpage at 7 p.m. on May 5 (Adichie), May 12 (Galgut), and May 25 (Gurnah).
