International African Writer’s Day

November 7 is the International Day of the African Writer. Its celebration was initiated in 1992 by the Pan-African Association of Writers. The purpose of this day is to spread the unique literature of Africa on other continents. Thanks to it, readers around the world can get acquainted with the amazing authentic cultures of the indigenous peoples of more than 54 countries of the continent.

Now African writers are often awarded prestigious prizes, and four of them have already become Nobel laureates. They participate in book fairs, literary forums and international conferences, and some are invited as screenwriters to film sets.

Representatives of the literary world community claim that today Africa is the continent richest in people who write and read literature. And thanks to African writers, post-colonial literature is now gaining popularity again.
