Public Reading with Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi

20 July 2017, O Cafe, Queens, Gulu, 7 pm

On 20 July, the Ugandan Youth and Creative Writing team hosted a public reading at O Cafe in Gulu to celebrate the end of our workshop. Headlined by Jennifer Makumbi, who charmed the crowd with readings from Kintu and frank discussion of the role of the writer, the reading also featured the literary debut of five of our workshoppers. Here’s to many more readings to come from these amazing young people!
