Benin: Televised Literary Contest

France-based Togolese blogger Kangni Alem recounts (Fr) with much enthusiasm his recent experience at a televised literary competition in Benin which attracted aspiring writers of all ages. The competition was organized by beninoise Djamila Idrissa Souler and took place November 6. Says the blogger: “This contest illustrates, in a bold bet, [the desire to] train tomorrow's readers … Literary events of this magnitude are sorely needed on the continent.” He posts pictures of the organizers and winners.
