Updated Invitation With New Times! Meet Zambian Writer Natasha Omokhodion Wednesday 18 March 10:50-11:40 in the Protea Room
Any interested AISL community members are welcome to join our Grade 9 students who will be speaking with local writer Natasha Omokhodion next Wednesday as part of an interdisciplinary unit on the role of the arts in society. We will hold this special session on Wednesday 18 March from 13:20-14:20 in the AISL Palm Pavilion.
Ms. Omokhodion recently published her first novel, No Be From Hia (2019). This debut novel - a finalist for the Graywolf Press Africa Prize- explores multi-generational family dynamics shaped by the post-colonial migration of the 1960’s. Identity and biculturalism feature prominently in the novel, which draws on Ms. Omokhodion’s own Zambian / Nigerian / Jamaican heritage. We will have a limited number of books available for purchase and signing (200 cash kwacha each; correct change appreciated).
Ms. Omokhodion is also the author of several short stories. The complete text of two of her short stories, including an Afro-futurist work titled “The Doorway" is available on Ms. Omokhodion’s official website.
Please consider joining us for this special event if you like! If you have specific questions, please contact Secondary School Librarian Terry Maguire.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
