ROSL ARTS - The Caine Prize for African Writing


Date: 28th June 2012 19:00


Readings by the five shortlisted writers for the 2012 Caine Prize for African Writing. The prize is named after Sir Michael Caine, former Chairman of Booker plc, and of the Booker management committee for nearly 25 years. The prize, which has been awarded annually since 2000, is for a short story published in English (whether in Africa or anywhere else). An 'African Writer' is taken to man a writer born anywhere on the African continent whose work reflects that cultural background. This event will be chaired by Lizzy Attree, Administrator of the Caine Prize, and offers a unique platform for some of the best new literary voices coming out of Africa.


Ticket includes wine and canapés served afterwards.
