Siya Khumalo, Chiké Frankie Edozien, Khanyisa Mnyaka & Stefanie Hirsbrunner

May the games begin: 4 panelists bring one book they love to the table. Will the other three love it as much as they do? Will they be able to convince each other or is a good book after all in the eye of the beholder? Let's find out. Up for debate "Fairy Tales For Lost Children" by Diriye Osman, "Junx" by Tshidiso Moletsane, Liv Little's "Rosewater" and "The Sex Lives of African Women" by Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah.

InterKontinental e.V. has been organizing the African Book Festival in Berlin for 6 years. This year, the festival takes place from June 28th to 30th as a Queer Edition, focusing on African and Afro-diasporic authors from the LGBTQI+ community and showcasing literature in which homosexuality and queerness in Africa play a role.

The African Book Festival offers its festival guests a brave space for their writing, experiences and perspectives. It addresses the persecution of homo-, bi-, trans- and intersex people as well as genderqueer people worldwide and raises awareness. At the same time, the festival presents writers who in their writing celebrate one thing above all: Love.
