ROSL ARTS preview event for the Caine Prize for African Writing offers a unique opportunity to listen to the five 2011 shortlisted writers from Botswana, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe give short readings of their own works.

The Caine Prize for African Writing is an annual literary award for the best original short story by an African writer, whether in Africa or elsewhere, published in the English language. The £10,000 prize was founded in the United Kingdom in 2000, and was named in memory of the late Sir Michael Harris Caine, former Chairman of Booker Group plc. Because of the Caine Prize's connection to the Booker Prize, the award is sometimes called the "African Booker".
