A Reading with 2018 Caine Prize Winner Bushra al-Fadil

Yesterday, the Center for Africana Studies was honored to host what is the first in an annual series of visits by the winner of the Caine Prize for African Writing, an international award. Sudanese author Bushra Al-Fadil, the 2017 Caine Prize winner, read from and spoke about his winning short story, “The Story of the Girl Whose Birds Flew Away.” The story was originally published in “The Book of Khartoum – A City in Short Fiction.”

The event was hosted and moderated by Professor Jeanne-Marie Jackson (English Department, JHU), and co-sponsored by the Georgetown University English Department and the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice.
