Books for Sierra Leone's children written by Sierra Leone's authors

One of the recent editions to the Library is rather special.

Rosetta went to meet with Alieu Kamara of PEN SL who with help from CODE, a Canadian NGO who have been supporting Development through Education for over 50 years have been able to publish and print eight children’s books written by local authors.

Alieu explained that having moved from their starting base in Kenema, PEN SL help to train writers. They also usually have annual writers workshop called Talabi A. C. Lucan writers workshop.

We were delighted that PEN SL were generous enough to donate one set of the eight books that have been published for the library and Rosetta has invited Alieu to come and visit the library and we look forward to seeing him, or one of the new authors very soon.

The pictures in this article are covers of some of the books.
