Come one, come all Kenyans who love to read, The Story Moja Festival is here again.
Actually, it started yesterday, but it will be going on until the end of the week.
If you’re like me and you are wondering what the festival is about. Well:
The Festival is a four day celebration of stories, ideas, writing and contemporary culture through storytelling, books, live discussion forums, workshops, debates, live performances, competitions, mchongoano and music. It is organized in collaboration with Storymoja, the Hay Festival (UK) and British Council. The Hay Festival held in the UK every May attracts up to 150,000 people ranging from presidents to authors to fans.
I Caroline Mutoko’d that from the StoryMoja website.
One person I asked told me, point blank, that it would quite possibly be “the biggest gathering of creative minds in Kenya sharing their stories.” That’s all I needed to hear.
The crew will definitely be at a few of these so we hope to run into you there.
