Poetry Festival Promotes Local Literature

Ours is not only a festival that promotes spoken word poetry and storytelling alone. Maun International Poetry Festival 2012 also aims at encouraging and promoting Batswana writers, both established and upcoming. We are for all literary arts, written and spoken. In an endeavour to uplift our own writers, there will be eight titles from Batswana writers on sale during the festival in May 26th, Maun Lodge, Maun, Botswana. Courtesy of Pentagon Publishers, Poetavango will be selling the following books at our long awaited festival. If you ever thought Botswana doesn’t have writers, think again
1.      The Moon has Eyes and Other Stories by Legodile Seganabeng and other writers
2.      Travelling to the Sun: The Diary of Ruth by Tshetsana Senau
3.      Curse of a Dream by Phidson Mojoreki
4.      Born With a Husband by Khonani Ontebetse
5.      The Solar Heater and Other Stories by Lauri Kubuitsile and other writers
6.      Which Doctor and Other Stories by Bontekanye Botumile and other writers
7.      Putting On Faces and Other Stories by Gothataone Moeng and other writers
8.      Words on the Ways of the World by Goodwill Tlokwe  
Think about it. Isn’t it worth it? To have a Motswana writer in your collection of books? We think it is! Again, lets promote the culture of reading and cast away the cliché that Batswana don’t read.
