Ghanaian diva Ofie Kodjo and ace poet D.K. Osei Yaw will on Friday, June 13 perform at the official launch of a book titled ‘I Have Time And Other Stories’ at the La Villa Boutique Hotel in Accra.
Written by Franka Maria Andoh, ‘I Have Time And Other Short Stories’ is a collection of 11 short stories, which was published with support from the Ghana Denmark Cultural Fund (GDCF).
The author would be reading portions of the book at the launch, which is being supported by WIENCO, an agricultural company. It promises to be a scintillating literary evening alongside refreshing music and poetry from Ofie Kodjo and D.K. Osei Yaw.
Also a restaurateur, Andoh who has been writing since her childhood, makes Ghana a very important part of her stories. Reviewers have variously described her as ‘sly’, ‘social critic’ and ‘incredibly funny’.
She has already published two children’s stories, ‘Dokono, The Donkey’ and ‘Koku, The Cockerel’. ‘Mansa’, her first published short story is included in this collection and was part of the Caine African Writer’s Anthology, ‘Work in Progress and Other Stories’.
The GDCF, which was set up by the Danish Centre for Culture and Development, has since 2012, when its second phase was commenced, released a total of GH¢987,622.55 for various arts projects throughout the country.
These include publishing of books, documentary films, dance productions, acquisition of instruments storytelling and reading programmes for school children, among others.
