Centre for African Literary Studies (CALS) celebrates Africa Day


CALS invited University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) staff and students to celebrate Africa Day a day early on 24th May, 2013, by visiting the Centre for a tour of its collections.   Law students, Sakhile Nene and Judy Rautenhheimer, took a break from their legal studies to celebrate with CALS. The picture shows them in front of displays on the CALS  isiZulu Literary Museum;  the South African  literary biographer, poet and novelist, Stephen Gray, and the late Chinua Achebe. Achebe, the Nigerian writer, is renowned for his novels amongst which the best known is Things fall apart.

CALS has substantial holdings of the works of both writers which are reflected in the UKZN Library’s iLink catalogue and on the CALS website at https://cals.ukzn.ac.za.
