Dynamic Duo of Bahati e-books for 2017; Congo-Brazzaville author speaks on identity in The Heart of the Leopard Children

Dynamic Duo of Bahati e-books for 2017; Congo-Brazzaville author speaks on identity in The Heart of the Leopard Children
 
Wilfried N'Sondé, author of The Heart of the Leopard Children, speaking about his book at RFI in Paris LA Bagnetto

It's Africa: Stories in the 55's first anniversary, and we are starting off the year with a look at  Bahati Books, a dynamic e-book publisher, and what they have to offer readers on the continent and beyond. We also welcome into our studios Republic of Congo author Wilfried N'Sondé, who tells us about his latest project, a historical novel.

Wilfried N'Sondé speaks to Stories in the 55 about how identity, or perceived identity, is at the core of his novel, The Heart of the Leopard Children, which has just been translated into English (Indiana University Press). Identity and race also factor into the book he is working on, that weaves Congo Brazzaville, the Catholic Church, and a wayward journey around the world.

Listen to Wilfried N'Sondé speak about The Heart of the Leopard Children and his historical novel in the works

We have the opportunity to speak with both co-founders of Bahati Books, Barbara Njau and Kudakwashe Kamupira, who reveal their new selections for 2017, as well as the future of e-books and African publishing, including African-based science fiction.
