Award-winning authors K.L. Barron and Tim Bascom
Saturday June 3rd, 1:30-2:30pm
Please join us for a reading featuring landscapes and cultures of East and West Africa: the rugged mountains and plateaus of Ethiopia and the edge of the Sahara in Niger. Tim Bascom spent half his childhood in Ethiopia and will share both memoir and fiction detailing Ethiopian culture. K.L. Barron lived among the nomads of Niger for a time and will read from her novel Thirst, which captures the dominating desert landscape and some of the nomads’ endangered traditional culture including the Wodaabé men’s beauty contest where they wear elaborate makeup, shiny objects, feathers, and other adornments showing their charisma, dance moves, and charm.
