Panashe Chigumadzi - reading and conversation

Save the date: novelist and essayist Panashe Chigumadzi is coming to Bijlmer Parktheater to read from and discuss her work. Her debut novel Sweet Medicine (Blackbird Books, 2015) won the 2016 K. Sello Duiker Literary Award. Her second book, These Bones Will Rise Again, a reflection on Robert Mugabe’s ouster, was published in June 2018 by the Indigo Press. A columnist for The New York Times, and contributing editor of the Johannesburg Review of Books, her work has featured in titles including The Guardian, Chimurenga, Africa is A Country, Transition, Washington Post and Die Ziet.

On the afternoon of the 23rd, Panashe Chigumadzi will give a writing workshop. On Friday June 14, Joseph Jordan will host a gathering of people who'd like to read some of Chigumadzi's work together.

Moderator: Tracian Meikle, co-founder of the Amsterdam Black Women collective.
