Global reads – AKFC’s Book Club

April 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In April, we’ll be exploring the remarkable narratives in Erin Hern’s book, Explaining Successes in Africa: Things Don’t Always Fall Apart. This isn’t your typical Africa narrative; it’s a journey into the unsung victories, resilience, and triumphs that often go unnoticed. We’re thrilled to have Erin Hern herself as our guest author, offering a firsthand account of her inspirations and insights.

To facilitate this conversation, we will be joined by Cheryl Urban, Assistant Deputy Minister for Sub-Saharan Africa at Global Affairs Canada. Cheryl’s wealth of experience and deep understanding of the region will undoubtedly contribute to a nuanced exploration of the book’s themes.

Let’s connect for an evening of insightful dialogue! Don’t miss this opportunity to dig deeper into what Choice has called a masterful study of policy successes in Africa.
