An Evening of words and music with the Caine Prize writers and ROSL musicians
The Caine Prize for African Writing is a literature prize awarded to an African writer of a short story published in English. The prize was launched in 2000 to encourage and highlight the richness and diversity of African writing by bringing it to a wider audience internationally. The focus on the short story reflects the contemporary development of the African story-telling tradition. ROSL is delighted to have supported the Caine Prize since its founding, providing accommodation for the writers when staying in London, and hosting an event at which the authors will read from their works. This year, the event will combine music performances with the readings, with a duo performance from Jonathan Radford saxophone and South African pianist Ben Schoeman.
