When I was a Girl in Sudan, When I was a boy in Sudan
The Tasmanian Writers' Centre is distributing these two lovely children's books. They are part of a three year collaborative project between the Tasmanian Writers' Centre, writers, an illustrator, a designer and the South Sudanese Ma'di community. The books capture the essence of childhood in a Sudanese village and are memories of Paskalina Eiyo and Sarafino Enadio. They combine both English and Ma'di. Proceeds from the sale of these books will go towards the cost of freight for books to children and schools South Sudan.
They are $15 per copy, available at http://www.tasmanianwriters.org
