Book Signing at A Novel Idea Books Shop in Dar es Salaam

Updated: Apr 22

We enjoyed meeting Sarah and Paul from A Novel Idea Book shop in Tanzania to celebrate the book signing event of I am Semba on the 2nd of February. It was so great to meet and chat with locals and ex-pats about our book, and also to hear about their daily lives in Dar. It was so fabulous to hear their stories and to receive such a positive response about I am Semba.

Thanks to Sarah, Paul and everybody who came. To Prince who took some lovely photos, and to Neelam, who has now read our book, and posted this on Instagram :

Neelam (@insta Africa_Reads), a columnist for The National Tanzanian Newspaper - The Citizen, and book reviewer - quotes on Instagram this week:

'My latest obsession is reading this amazing book, I am Semba. I am so excited to review it. Stay tuned for my review next week Friday'.


We spent 10 fabulous days in Dar es Salaam, Moshi and surrounding areas. Revisiting many of the places described in our book. It was amazing to be back in such a stunning country. Hope to return very soon!
