The U.N. Correspondents Association, in cooperation with the U.N. Staff 1% for Development Fund, hosted a book reading with Nigerian author Uwem Akpan on Wednesday, April 30th in the UNCA Meeting Room, to support “Authors for Literacy”, which helps benefit literacy projects in developing countries.
Mr. Akpan read from his book Say You’re One of Them, which is a collection of stories each set in a different African country told from the point-of-view of a child. It was chosen for Oprah’s Book Club in 2009 and reviewed in the New York Times.
The author’s publisher (Little Brown & Company) donated 100 copies of the book for the event which were available for sale to support the literacy fund, and were signed by the author.

1. Intelligence/police ruling out MDC as a source of Bulawayo explosion. MDC clearly don’t have capacity.
2. Militant activists in Bulawayo have been questioned and ruled out
Today's explosion at White City Stadium in Byo is a tragic reminder that the use of tanks, bombs, grenades & guns by whosoever against anyone to settle a political contest is barbaric. Nov 15, 2017 set a dangerous paradigm for politics in Zimbabwe. Violence begets violence. Sad! pic.twitter.com/PugLVxTnYc— Prof Jonathan Moyo (@ProfJNMoyo) June 23, 2018
Io sono romano-salentina, ma oggi mi sento un pochino milanese anche io twitter.com/gramantovani1/…
non c’è un’Italia solo razzista, intollerante, misera, pronta a scagliarsi sui più poveri e sui diseredati. C’è Milano dove il Sindaco Beppe Sala e l’arcivescovo Mario Delpini organizzano il Pranzo Multietnico più Grande del Mondo, a Parco Sempione.Grazie, sono di Milano anch’io.— graziellamantovani (@gramantovani1) June 23, 2018
