Dola, the tour guide from the States celebrated in the post entitled “Akwasidae in Kumasi” of 2010-03-25 brought GAME CHANGE a fascinating analysis of the US presidential nomination and campaign battles in 2007-2008 which she promptly lent me at the beginning of her four night stay saying “I know you’ll enjoy this.”
And then Debbie gave me THE HELP. and it wasn’t long before Dola was into it. Ya, see her friend Shirley back in the States, who was here last year with Dola, had just finished reading THE HELP with her book club and Dola was curious. So here we are Dola and Chris, reading buddies!
