Tickets and Reservations
The Puffin Interview Series holds our first in-person interview with our very own Dr. Joe Chuman and Dr. Arthur Dobrin, the author of This Red Land, a work that captures two worlds: Kenya and in the United States of America. The book deals with many of the issues affecting these two countries in the 1980’s and 1990’s. There is Sungusungu in Kisii, Junius George’s murder trial and death. The tribal killings in Kenya in 1992, witchcraft as presented in Kisii, the Tomkins park riot in which Kwamboka is involved in and many more events are real. The title spurs interest in political and social states both in Kenya and the United States of America in the 80’s and 90’s.
