The State of African Publishing: Cassava Republic

"We think that contemporary African writing should be rooted in African experience in all its diversity". This is Cassava Republic Press. One of the new publishing houses in Africa "feeding the African imagination". Cassava Republic was founded in Abuja, Nigeria in 2006 and publish fiction, non-fiction and children's books. They also organise writing workshops and school writers-in-residence programmes. Three things I love about Cassava Republic - they make books from the diaspora available locally, like Abidemi Sanusi's Kemi's Journal and Zach's Story, they are introducing contemporary African writing, like Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani's I Do Not Come to You By Chance, and their books are affordable, without compromising the quality and design of the book.


Here are some of the wonderful works they publish and you can find out more about them on their website
