In our last reading for the year 2011, we will feature Dr Gheysika Adombire Agambila, author of the novel, “Journey”.
Gheysika Adombire Agambila was born in Bolgatanga, and was educated in Ghana and the USA, where he had his BA from Brandeis University, an MBA from the University of Rochester, and Ph.D from New York University. Dr Agambila has worked with Ernst and Young, taught at the University of Ghana Business School, and served as a Deputy Minister of State in the Ministries of Finance and Economic Planning, Harbours and Railways, and Environment and Science.
He also has to his credit a collection of short stories for children, “Solma: Tales from from Northern Ghana”.
Dr Agambila will read from the novel, “Journey”, described by reviewer Kari Dako as “…an absorbing exploration of reality in contemporary Ghana…” and by A Denkabe as “… a fine novel, written in a sober yet often moving style, and rich in the way it reflects the Ghanaian post-colony.”
“Journey” is published by Sub-Saharan Publishers and is available in bookshops across Ghana and also online at Amazon.com
This event offers the opportunity to meet and interact with G A Agmabila. There will be a short discussion session after the readings. Copies of the book will be on sale.
