You are invited to City Books for a free Reading and Book Signing with Edward Banchs, author of Heavy Metal Africa: Life, Passion and Heavy Metal in the Forgotten Continent.
Told partly as travel narrative, with a light academic tone, Heavy Metal Africa introduces readers to young musicians who have been able to flourish amidst the likes of political unrest of Madagascar, the brutal ethnic discord of Kenya, and life under one of the world’s most savage dictators in Zimbabwe. Banchs spent five years traveling to various African countries, meeting bands and experiencing the local rock and metal scenes. There he discovered a side of Africa he had never learned about at university.
Edward Banchs will be at City Books on Tuesday, December 13 at 7:00 pm. For more information, visit the Reading and Book Signing: Edward Banchs event page.
