The Institute of African Studies invites you to join us on Thursday, June 29, 2023 at 12 noon for a new book launch titled “Handicapped ” by Claude Winnie Pefole F.
Dunton Tower 1706 and online

Handicapped depicts the stories of seven characters that highlight social evils affecting females in general and those of Cameroon in particular. Moving recounts underscore the life of many women who may be a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, etc. This book offers a different perception of femininity which, far away from being a disability, embodies a world of opportunities for those who are often overshadowed in society.
