New Daughters of Africa with Margaret Busby

Global Female Writers

Margaret Busby’s historical anthology Daughters of Africa was published 27 years ago to international acclaim. Now there’s a companion volume. New Daughters of Africa is a glorious portrayal of the richness and range of over 200 contemporary women writers of African descent, showcasing a global sweep and diversity through memoir, letters, stories, poetry, essays and more. Contributing authors Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Bernardine Evaristo, Leila Aboulela and Candice Carty-Williams join Busby today to discuss the remarkable collection.
