Cuckoo And The Destiny By Audifac Igance A Book Release Event says
The City of Atlanta - Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs presents a theatrical book event on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

Cameroonian Author Audifac Ignace will celebrate the release of his new children’s book “Cuckoo and the Destiny” with a reading accompanied by a theatrical musical performance and book signing. This special presentation for the entire family is being co-hosted by the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.

"Cuckoo and the Destiny" is a fascinating story of the life of Moni, the pregnant cuckoo bird who decides to abandon her home, her mom Kima, and all her relatives, to fly far, so far away to the forest of SHUDIME. Unfortunately, Moni is not accepted by the animal kingdom she has migrated to. As a newcomer she can easily get eaten, much less build a nest for shelter and lay her eggs. With these hardships Moni’s adventures begin. "Cuckoo and the Destiny" is one of a series of tales told by Audifac’s grandma KWANEUNE, who was living in a forest village in Cameroon when certain values and traditions were transmitted only orally. To entertain and educate the children of the village, at that period, where they were no books, no videos, no schools etc. she danced, sung and told stories using the slogan: "All stories that are not told, are lost".

There will be reception following the book reading and performance.
