The First Woman
Special Pick of September
Smart, headstrong Kirabo (named after “Eve” in Ugandan mythology) is raised by her grandparents in rural Uganda. But as she enters her teens, she starts to feel overshadowed by the absence of the mother she has never known.
At once epic and deeply personal, THE FIRST WOMAN is the bold and piercing story of one young girl’s discovery of what it means to be a woman in a family, a community and a country that seem determined to silence her.
A timeless, universal story, with a contemporary feminist message, THE FIRST WOMAN portrays an unforgettable group of headstrong, independent women. Steeped in the rich folklore of Uganda but with an eye firmly on the future, Jennifer Makumbi has written a sweeping, effervescent tale of longing, femininity, and courage.
