Great Literature Discussion: The Poor Christ of Bomba by Mongo Beti (Online)

July 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used.

Read the novella in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.

Chinua Achebe from Nigeria is probably the most known African author (Things Fall Apart). Mongo Beti from Cameroon is his counterpart of comparable stature in francophone Africa. This is the link to one of his novels from the 50s The Poor Christ of Bomba.

Read The Poor Christ of Bomba online here.
