If you are a lover of poetry this should make you have a large smile as much as you can! Peter who is a well known poet and a active performer will debut his first poetry collection under new publishing house Sooo Many Stories founded by Nyana Kakoma (formerly a journalist who dropped her job to venture into publishing). Peter Kagayi’s collection will be the first title from the publishing House- The Headline That Morning and Other poems will be accompanied by an audio CD of the poems performed.
You should mark your calender as the Book Launch is slated for June 8 this year at National Theatre (entry 20k ) and a proper introduction of Sooo Many Stories publishing House. The Beauty of this is you will have to buy an audio CD (that will be sold at 15k) to listen to the poems which we think the route to Orality is significant. That’s what makes poetry more a Live. Interestingly Baru and Abaasar of Dustville have there hands on one of the poems-Nightmares. According to Writivism.org “Kagayi and other collaborators went to the studio to record 15 of the poems.”
Good Luck Peter, Kakoma and the entire Soo Many Stories Team!
You Can Listen to the released Audio Poems.
