The Pride of Ewe Kente

I have a few copies of this book for sale.

Bob Dennis Ahiagble , the author, is from a famous weaving family in Ghana.
Ewe kente is unique in that it has symbols and figures (animals-people) woven into it. Bob Dennis explains the meanings of the symbols and gives a glimpse into the life a a Ghanaian weaving family.

ABA wrote a book

After many years in Ghana I just felt the urge to put my
adventures in print. These are vignettes - all true . The amazing thing about Ghana is that no matter how many times you go, there are new stories to tell.

Some of them are funny, some are sad and some "make me scratch my mind". That and the title are Talk Truisms. If you've come to Ghana with Cross Cultural Collaborative, you have met him. If you haven't, you should.

If you'd like to order a copy:

Send a check or money order to:

Cross Cultural Collaborative
45 Auburn St.
Brookline,MA 02446  USA

Each copy is $18.00 which includes shipping in the USA. If you want it shipped elsewhere, we can check the cost.

The Aba House kids are awesome. They have been making paper and journals and now, next summer, will write original, culturally relevant stories ( and of course, illustrate them) and we will self publish.
Schools in Ghana don't have story books.
Some of our books will be donated to schools.

We are looking for someone to facilitate this workshop. Can you teach CREATIVE WRITING? Want to come to Ghana this summer?

Let's talk. contact

activities at Aba House Jan. 2013

A generous donation allowed us to cook lunch for the kids and another donation brought 50 pair of sneakers.
We had a batik workshop and Sharon collected stories. Ghanaians all have stories to tell.
