“How do we bring literature alive?” This is the question driving Wanjiru Koinange and Angela Wachuka, the co-founders of Book Bunk, an independent organisation based in Nairobi that transforms the city’s libraries into inclusive public spaces.
To celebrate this week’s Book Bunk visit to GWL, our Story Café Special focused on Kenyan writers and activists. Read a summary of the Kenyan fiction, films and organisations we discussed.
Our volunteer Jacquie was asked to help with admin tasks on the Book Bunk project. Glasgow Women’s Library is sharing its experience and knowledge with this, equally fantastic, organisation which is reviving 3 libraries in Nairobi. This made her reflect on her time volunteering at the library.
We’re delighted to announce that we have been selected to be a critical friend to Book Bunk, an organisation based in Nairobi.
