Two WEN members mentioned in this Amazon.in review yesterday:*[5.0 out of 5 stars](www.amazon.in/gp/customer-reviews/R39NDHYM1R318Y/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B009XDKLX6)***[A slice of Goan history in Kenya's pre-independent existence](www.amazon.in/gp/customer-reviews/R39NDHYM1R318Y/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B009XDKLX6)**Reviewed in India on 16 January 2021'More Matata' opens with a beautiful epigraph, a poem by Zohra Zoberi, called Editing Myself. The poem touches upon what we retain (or don't) as life goes on. The Prologue draws similarities between the author and Barack Obama's Kenyan father, since both have spent their growing years in Kenya.The story continues from the first novel, 'Just Matata' and follows the growing up years of Lando in Kenya. The book is written in present tense and the author has maintained a skilled grip over his narrative blend of personal and political histories. The novel draws from real events and holds the reader till its heartbreaking close (sorry for this spoiler - I was rooting very hard for Lando).This Matata trilogy is a perfect study for students of Postcolonial fiction because it captures the angst of working Goans (the community of mostly Catholics from the erstwhile Portuguese colony of Goa) in Africa. Subjects of Portugal (in Goa) and of Britain (in Kenya), these Goans had moved there for better job prospects. ... See MoreSee Less

Our Saturday, November 21st meeting will be our first meeting via Zoom with a speaker. To defray the cost of the speaker, we will be sending a Zoom invite to all current WEN members and to those whose membership is less than 6 months overdue. Zoom can't replace an in-person meeting but it gives us a chance to see and hear everyone again. I encourage everyone to try out Zoom. Send an email to communications@wenetwork.ca and I will call and try to help out. Another option is to call a friend who has been using Zoom.Our speaker will be **Rosanna Micelotta Battigelli.**She will be talking about her book "La Brigantessa" and reading a few selections. ...

I've just been scrolling through the hundreds of photos of friends at past meetings, most of them taken by the wonderful Jasmine. How I miss the personal interaction at these breakfasts, especially my friends at the Naughty Table, presided over by Anna Stitski. I noticed a photo of dear Jack Livesley, a former member. How I miss him! While Maurus has done his very best with ZOOM, it just isn't the same as breakfasts of yesteryear when we were free of the plague. Let's hope we can all meet again sometime soon! ...
