Pick of the Week: AD3 2014: Africa's Population Growth and Youth Unemployment: Implications and Policy Response 
I'm very excited about Africa Writes 2014 - particularly the chance to meet Ama Ata Aidoo, arguably Ghana's most famous novelist, and the doyenne of female African writers. My favourite of her works is the novel, Changes - written in the 1990s, the story brims with the energy of its protagonist, Esi - a very, modern girl doing some serious juggling of life, love and career in an all too modern African city.

Seriously, If you haven't read it, get a copy and read it, and join us for an audience with Ama Ata Aidoo on the 11th July - and the rest of the Africa Writes
