About this event

The year is 1750, Kintu Kidda sets out for the capital to pledge allegiance to the new leader of the Buganda people. Along the way he unleashes a curse that plagues his family for generations… Makumbi weaves together the story of Kintu’s descendants as they try to break free of that burden from their past.
Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi is a Ugandan novelist now living in Manchester and is a former winner of the Commonwealth Short Story prize.
Five Leaves’ book group is open, and no commitment is required other than reading the book under discussion. Attend one meeting, occasional meetings or them all… We don’t mind how you source the book but offer 15% discount on book group books in the lead up to the event.
Attendance is free, refreshments are provided. Let us know you are coming on
