A Bookshop for South Sudan

South Sudan's second bookshop is now open at the Roots Project, Nimra Talata, in Juba town. Leaves bookshop is the brainchild of Awak Bior, an official at the Juba office of the European Union. The RVI, along with other individual and institutional supporters, is contributing to the initial stock, with copies of two recent RVI publications (Douglas Johnson's When Boundaries Become Borders and Edward Thomas' The Kafia Kingi Enclave.) South Sudan's only other bookshop, Paulines, which stocks mainly religious books, was established before independence and is situated opposite Juba Hospital.
