The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) is pleased to announce Eloghosa Osunde, author of Vagabonds!, as the winner of the 2023 African Literary Award. The award recognizes an African author who has produced a work of literary excellence that expands global understanding of African lives and storytelling. The award is granted to an author whose book has been read by the museum's African Book Club.

Eloghosa Osunde’s brave, fiercely inventive novel traces a wild array of characters – “vagabonds” whose existence is literally outlawed: the poor, the displaced, the footloose and rogue spirits who inhabit transient spaces and alternative realities and for whom life itself is a form of resistance.

Osunde will be honored at the virtual Award Ceremony on Sunday, December 3rd, at 12pm PST/2100 WAT. The program will include a live reading and conversation to be moderated by African Book Club co-founder Faith Adiele
