ímbubé : (noun) Zulu word for Lion
This festival & awards was inspired by this quote from Chinua Achebe:
“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter… Once I realized that, I had to be a writer. It’s not one man’s job. But it is something we have to do, so that the story of the hunt will also reflect the agony, the travail — the bravery, even, of the lions.”
We celebrate & promote those that beautifully tell the story of “lions”
ímbubé is an annual book festival & awards initiative by NerveFlo and supported by the finest corporate, publishing & media organizations.
