Joining the Africa Book Club couldn’t be easier, and best of all, there’s something for everyone, from the casual browser looking to explore the world of African writing to the Afrophile wanting to read all that’s exciting and new from the continent. A premium membership is a great way to keep on top of the latest book releases by your favorite African authors and get the best deals on African literature classics, bestsellers, and recently released books.
Your membership is also an opportunity to make a real difference — with your support, we are able to provide an outlet for upcoming African authors and bring the best of African literature to the world. Thanks to the generosity of people just like you, we are able to run our popular monthly writing competition, the Africa Book Club Short Story Competition.
