An African novel, “Search Sweet Country,” follows the lives of an eclectic and interconnected group of Ghanaians living near the sprawling, chaotic city of Accra in the mid-1970s. Bringing to life the bustling markets and bars in dizzying, lyrical prose, author Kojo Laing weaves a story filled with bizarre and often melancholy characters: an idealistic professor, a lovely young witch, a wide-eyed student, a corrupt politician and more. Their collective narratives create a portrait of a country where colonialism is dying but democracy remains elusive. A’Jamal Byndon, MCC social science instructor, will facilitate a discussion of the book that has been chosen as part of MCC’s Diversity Matters Book Series. Read the book prior to discussion or just come to share in dialogue.
