Deborah Mboya’s New Book Gives Readers a Refreshing Story about Bountiful Harvest Close Family Ties

“The New Yam Festival” brings the readers to a different world and culture and shares the universal values of thanksgiving and family ties.


Lives and cultures may differ but all people share the same love for home and family.

Deborah Mboya shares to the readers a refreshing story set in the plains of Africa, giving out a glimpse of one of the most festive times in her book, “The New Yam Festival.” For those who are familiar or unfamiliar with the African festivals, the title does not refer to a new or improved version of an old festival, but rather this is the festival that comes after the Yam Festival. A clever coincidence of a play on words, the book will catch the interest of readers.
“The New Yam Festival” will let the readers embark on a travel to a distant land where sweet yams can be found very abundant. Deborah masterfully tells the story of African culture and the colorful festivals, and also of the ways of life and traditions of its people. Readers will get to know Achuwanike from the village of Uwaoma and see the beauty of Africa through his eyes and experiences. The story in the book gives credence and truth to the Iboland proverb that says, “When the harvest season ends, it is the time of the year when everybody is at home.” After the harvest season, the celebration of the bountiful harvest and thanksgiving to the gods of the land commences with the Yam Festival. The New Yam Festival is the continuation of the Yam Festival, wherein new yam crops are planted for the next harvest season. The book gives importance to the concept of home, family and traditions and the bonds that people keep over the years. Deborah brilliantly shares this story to the readers to let them know that home is where the heart of people truly is.
“The New Yam Festival” is an exciting and refreshing story that will let the readers know more about other cultures. The book also shows that although there are differences between cultures, there are also similarities which readers can appreciate. In the upcoming 2018 New York Rights Fair, which will be happening on May 30, 2018, this book and other books of interest will be available. Be at the fair and bring friends along.
