The TEDxEuston 2014 Book stand

This year as always, we will have a bookstand at TEDxEuston 2014, and we have a great line up of books written by our speakers. We have also asked them to kindly make the time to sign copies of the books that are purchased at the stands! As always, we are selling them at exactly the same price that we get them from the publishers. So come prepared!  We will also be accepting all debit/credit cards.

Find below a bit about the amazing books by our speakers which will be available :

One Day I Will Write About This Place by Binyavanga Wainaina

Of Wainana’s stunning debut, One Day I Will Write About this Place, which was also a New York Times Notable Book, the New York Times writes:“it’s a book for anyone who still finds the nourishment of a well- written tale preferable to the empty-calorie  jolt of a celebrity confessional.” A coming of age memoir, Wainana’s book is passionate and poetic, taking readers into a lyrical and honest journey of his life growing up middle class in Kenya.

I Want  To Work in Africa by Frances Mensah Williams

I want to work in Africa is the recipient of numerous awards. It is a book that   delves into the many questions African professionals abroad continuously ask themselves, such as if they should move back home and how one moves their career to the world’s exciting continent. It gives the reader an idea of the possibilities in Africa, as well as serves as guide on what to consider when contemplating making the move. It’s a practical, easy-to read and clear guide to working in Africa. Highly recommended!

Everyday Heroes by Frances Mensah Williams

 Williams’ second book is an inspirational account of sixteen brilliant  individuals who have achieved great success, in spite of the unbelievable challenges they faced. Everyday Heroes is about people whose lives inspire us not only to broaden our own dreams to beyond the skies but also to  make sure that the ground we are standing on is solid enough. This is a book for anyone who wants to remain motivated to pursue their dreams. It is therefore a book for everyone.

Dust by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor

Owuor’s much anticipated debut and critically acclaimed debut, Dust, is a brilliantly written glimpse of a family, a country, one haunted by violence and the ghosts of colonialism. Set in Kenya, Owuor’s narrative captures moments of brilliance, which are inventive and even breathtaking. Taiye Selasi writes in the New York Times, “only the reader who truly loves books — books full to brimming with imagery — will appreciate the magic Owuor has made of the classic nation-at-war novel.”
