Librarians reading Elechi Amadi's The Great Ponds in in Upper East, Ghana

| No Comments
A fantastic novel, and the librarians have been enjoying the discussion of how two communities ripped themselves apart over control of the great ponds.  A sad tale, masterfully written by Elechi Amadi, the little-known contemporary of Chinua Achebe.  Both writers' novels are among the best ever in terms of classic, well-written tales. Once you start reading, hard to stop, and the plots unfold.
