Public Reading & Discussion
Through this new series the Goethe-Institut Kenya provides a forum for Kenyan authors to interact with their audiences in open conversation. In the second edition, we meet two first-time authors, Ndiritu Wahome and Ciku Kimeria in a moderated panel discussion where they talk about their work as writers and experiences in the Kenyan literary scene.
Born in 1987, Ndiritu Wahome started writing at the age of 13. He is passionate about writing and other art forms. In The Sad Artist and Other Fairytales, he engages his readers with a collection of fairytales for all ages. It is a captivating journey that defies time and reality yet remains relevant.
Ciku Kimeria lives and works in Kenya as a consultant focusing on international development issues. In her debut novel Of Goats and Poisoned Oranges she presents the tumultuous marriage of a middle aged Kenyan power couple as it is told by different parties in their life.
