I was inspired to compile a list of books on Mali - have you read any? I've browsed through some - I will try to check them off my list this year!
Monique and the Mango Rains.
A book used by educators in Virgina written by Andrew Prophett, "the esteemed educator responsible for the development of Virginia’s new innovative elementary-level Mali curriculum." Go Virginia!
Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali.
A book about West African empires - Mali included!
A beautifully illustrated children's book about Mansa Musa: "one of Mali's most celebrated kings."
I am currently reading Segu by Maryse Conde and am learning more about the root of the joking cousins tradition. When I googled 'joking cousins + Mali' this is what I found - neat! Audra (and Ben) and I were volunteers together!
Waiting for Rain.
I bet this book on Bogolan is filled with beautiful images.
Dancing Skeletons - a book by a biocultural anthropologist (never heard of that before!) about working with malnourished children in West Africa. Anyone read it?
Do you have any favorite Mali/West Africa books? Any recommendations for my reading list?
