Title The Invisible Weevil
ISBN 9970 9010 2 8 (232pp)
Author Mary Karooro Okurut
A tale of compelling human interest, Mary Karooro Okurut's The Invisible Weevil is an ingenious translation of history into literary art. It is a fictionalised record of Uganda's past tragic national experience that spans decades of successive regimes. Political and gender concerns, which form the centre of the novel, are both humorously and sombrely presented.

Karooro Okurut, Founder Member of FEMRITE and her current President, is a celebrated novelist, playwright and columnist and was voted Uganda's Woman Writer of the Millennium by The New Vision Survey of 1999. She is also the author of The Official Wife, a novel that won The National Book Trust of Uganda Award 2004.
Title Farming Ashes

ISBN 978 9970 700 19 6
Yes, ashes can be farmed! Theses nine throbing personal tales of women from northern Uganda who have livedthrough and survived the LRA of theparadox of farming ashes to generate life, if that is all one is left.

Their tales of pain infused with incredible hope are personal testimonies of how life can sprout out of ashes. However riddled with contradictions the human person has capacity to rise above all forms of indignities.
