With only days left before the winner of the 2016 Caine Prize for African Writing is announced on 4th July, the five short-listed writers have been on a whirlwind circuit of public events throughout London, from a panel discussion at the Piccadilly Waterstones, to a “relaxed evening” at the Royal Overseas Offices and appearances at the Africa Writes festival. The first of these events took place at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) on 28June, 2016. The event was a friendly yet rigorous conversation between the authors, chaired by Dr. Gus Casely-Hayford, a cultural historian and curator broadly known for his “Lost Kingdoms of Africa” series on the BBC and currently a Research Associate at the Centre of African Studies (SOAS).
