Mugabi Byenkya author of DEAR PHILOMENA
‘Dear Philomena,’ is Byenkya’s debut novel. The story of two strokes, one girl, one boy and a whole lot of magical realism. ‘Dear Philomena’ is a one of a kind piece of work. It captures the ways that people read, live and behave in the new millennium. Byenkya speaks to mental and physical health, love and friendship, support and patience in ways that have yet to be done; all the while creating a uniquely suspenseful and thoughtful piece of literature.
Here’s the lineup for 11/19:
