Want to learn more?

We’ve identified some of our favorite books, from easy-to-read novels set in Africa, to some tantalizing nonfiction, and a few deeper reads as well.

 

Let us know what you think of these suggestions. Are there any books you would add?  Drop Evan a line at evan.haglund@wisezambia.org.

 

For every book you buy using the Amazon links here, Amazon pays WISE a small amount for the referral. These funds go to help our programs in Zambia. When you read, so does a child in Zambia.
