The Zimbabwean novelist, playwright, filmmaker and activist Tsitsi Dangarembga has been named as the eighth author to contribute to Katie Paterson's Future Library. Dangarembga will hand over her manuscript at the annual Future Library ceremony in Nordmarka Forest in Spring 2022.
Future Library creator Katie Paterson said that Future Library was “honoured” to include Dangarembga on a roster of authors that also includes David Mitchell, Han Kang, Sjón and Elif Shafak. “Tsitsi Dangarembga’s words have shaped the world. Praised for her ability to capture and communicate vital truths, the Zimbabwean novelist is admired worldwide as a voice of hope,” said Paterson. “She examines oppression, discrimination, and systemic racism, through writing that is brave and unforgettable.”
