Spotlight on Africa - In their own words: storytelling to protect vanishing African languages

Area Mall
Caffè Autori

Africa’s indigenous languages are at risk of extinction, and many have already disappeared. With indigenous children’s publishing one of the primary ways these languages are passed on to youth, telling African stories in African languages has never been more critical. This session will explore the role of governments, publishers, and authors in preserving and promoting indigenous languages.

Spotlight on Africa - Developing African reading culture beyond the classroom

Area Mall
Caffè Autori

The Accessibility and Visibility of African Children’s Books: Despite many literacy programs in Africa, little attention is paid to instilling a culture of reading amongst youth. The result is a generation that is reading less and watching more than ever before. This session will discuss the role of governments, donor agencies, publishers, librarians, teachers, and families in fostering a culture of reading.
