The Antonio Lozano Reading Club, Casa Africa, is to begin the “school year” with a detective novel by  Nii Ayikwey Parkes, set in the suburbs of Accra, Ghana, in a mysterious rural area.

The novel is entitled "The Bluebird Enigma", the author's first novel which was published in Spanish and Catalan in 2017 by the Club Editor publishing house, with translation by Magdalena Palmer and Xavier Pàmies, respectively.

On this occasion, in view of the special circumstances we are all aware of, the club meeting will not be attended by members in person as usual, but will be a virtual meeting, using the Teams platform and will count on the participation of the author.

The meeting will take place on 18th September, 2020 at 6:00 pm (Canary Is. Local time)

The novel, finalist for the Commonwealth Prize in 2010, is the debut work of the writer Nii Ayikwei Parkes, born in the United Kingdom but brought up in Ghana. The author defines himself principally as a story teller. He is also a poet, editor and socio-cultural activist.
