Story Moja Hay Festival!

My girls and I went for the Story Moja Hay Festival this past weekend. I can't fathom why I had never attended this great forum. Any avid book reader (irrespective of preferred genre), would love this event. Basically, the event runs for a couple of days with different discussions occurring concurrently. The festival also has a children's session which promotes the development of a reading culture from a tender age, which I strongly advocate for.
We went for a couple of the sessions, but I must say that the session Tomorrow will come, hosted by Maina Kiai on efforts to engage the Kenyan population on political and social accountability was my favorite. I left feeling so rejuvenated!

Giles Foden talks to John Sibi-Okumu about his novels Zanzibar, Ladysmith and his award winning Idi Amin novel, The Last King of Scotland.
