Good morning everyone,
I had finished this book that I picked up at a literary festival over the summer at the Schomburg. I read a little bit at first and decided to go back and finish. The book is called Life is God’s Best Gift by Sam Chege.
The author was born and raised in Kenya then came to the United States during his 30s. He is an associate professor at Kansas State University in journalism and mass communications. This book is filled with African proverbs that reflect on life, love, peace and joy.
The author would give his own stories and quotes himself that can symbolize some of the proverbs in the book. Whether it’s from Uganda or the Congo, the proverbs speak to the heart and soul to anyone who reads it.
It’s a definite read for inspiration and encouragement.
