During break time …

Ms Lilian from Uganda FemWrits – an anorganisation that promotes women writers – making a presentation.

Publishers were also present to help young writers know the various publishing houses there are in the country

Mixed postures …

The big questions include: How do stakeholders (government, publishers, writers and the general public) work together to improve literacy levels in the country; How do we all work towards prioritizing the book so that it starts making useful returns to our economic, social and political well-being? If half the money that goes in preparation of weddings, send-offs, kitchen parties, graduation ceremonies etc were to go into books – would our society have a different outlook – that is – make it a society of well informed and responsible people, more industrious, more creative (positively) – in a way improve civic education? Isn’t it time the government invests in books as it does in agriculture and other fields?
You, my reader, may have answers/opinions regarding the above questions – please do share them with us!
