Timbuktu and book culture in Africa

The BBC has kindly given EAP permission to host a clip from last week’s Night Waves aired on Radio 3. Dr Shamil Jeppie, Director of the Tombouctou Manuscripts Project; Dr Marion Wallace, Lead Curator of African Studies at the British Library; and novelist Aminatta Forna joined Anne McElvoy to discuss the libraries in Timbuktu and book culture in Africa. During their discussions, two EAP projects were mentioned.

Here is the link if you would like to listen.
