VFOM invites you to join us in celebrating the Republic of Mali as it marks the 60th anniversary of independence from its status as a colony of France. 

Join us at 1 pm (5 pm Mali time) today on Instagram @ChopSueyBooks for readings and discussion about our Sister Cities Friendship between Mali and Virginia

Chop Suey Books' Ward Tef will welcome Ana Edwards, and she, if we're very lucky, will chat with Kadidia Samake Konate from Bamako! She is VCU alumnus who can speak to the experience of being a Malian in Virginia.
