Book Reading at Closing Reception

I am excited to announce that RPCV author Alice R O'Grady will be reading from Ashanti Saga: The Fort at the Closing Reception March 27. This is an amazing opportunity for us since Rabi studied in Ghana and I am a RPCV from Burkina Faso.

About O'Grady
A member of Ghana 1, the first U.S. Peace Corps group to go to work anywhere in the world, O'Grady taught science and biology in a secondary school in Ghana. She then served as Deputy Director of the Peace Corps in Western Nigeria, and returned to Ghana to teach at Accra Academy seconday school on contract with the Ghana government. She is a staff writer in the summer for the Chautauquan Daily newspaper at Chautauqua Institution, New York.

About Ashanti Saga
Set in 1900 West Africa, it’s the first of a projected series of five books that takes the reader through the twentieth century with an African family.
