    Writing an African Memoir Without Tragedy

    Robyn Scott will read from and sign her debut book Twenty Chickens for a Saddle: The Story of an African Childhood, her wonderful memoir of growing up in Botswana in a loving but eccentric family. Like the witch doctors who compete with her father for patients, Scott weaves a spell from the start of her book. Her funny, moving memoir, told with clear-eyed unsentimental affection, is about an idyllic childhood and a family's enthusiasm for each other and the world around them, with the essence of Africa - both beautiful and challenging - infusing every page - Tattered Cover
