USA Africa Dialogue Series - New-Generation African Poets: A Chapbook Box Set (Nne) – April 4, 2017

New-Generation African Poets: A Chapbook Box Set (Nne) Paperback – April 4, 2017

"Dawes and Abani have taken on the vital project of publishing short collections by contemporary poets from Africa, packaged together in beautiful boxed sets." —New York Times Magazine

Praise for New-Generation African Poets: A Chapbook Box Set (Tatu):

"New-Generation African Poets is an ambitious, vital project that delivers exactly what it promises. . . . As a group, the chapbooks dispel stereotypes about African writing. They also illustrate what editors Dawes and Abani note about the many ways poets can understand or redefine their ties to Africa. These insights are poignant and valuable, especially at a time when millions around the globe find themselves somewhere between new countries and ancestral lands they've left behind." —Washington Post,

"Each poem has an edge that cuts deeply. . . . A collection pulsing with fresh talent in a series that poetry lovers worldwide should be grateful for." —Shelf Awareness

The limited-edition box set is an annual project started in 2014 to ensure the publication of seven to ten chapbooks yearly by African poets through Akashic Books. The series seeks to identify the best poetry written by African poets working today, and it is especially interested in featuring poets who have not yet published their first full-length book of poetry.

The ten poets included in this box set are: Yasmin Belkhyr, Victoria Adukwei Bulley, Chekwube O. Danladi, Mary-Alice Daniel, Lena Bezawork Gronlund, Ashley Makue, Momtaza Mehri, Famia Nkansa, Ejiofor Ugwu, and Chimwemwe Undi.
