Kofi Aidoo is a Ghanian native and teacher who studied at the College of Wooster in Ohio and the University of Maryland College Park and is currently pursuing his dream of writing full time. He has published his latest book “Dusk at Dawn”: a compelling work of realistic fiction that draws the reader in with lush imagery and keeps the pages turning until the satisfying conclusion.

Aidoo writes, “The story unfolds mostly in two imaginary countries in West Africa and North America. Years of military coups and disillusionment after political independence persuade the people of a West African country to take the suggestion of a woman genius, Aberewa Tachiwaa, and go back in their history to retrieve what they have left behind. While the prospects of the new order look promising, the Gyase-hene, Osebo Okoampa plans to subvert them and become the first paramount chief, although he is not of royal lineage. The story shows how the Achem people of the Akan migrated first through Libya and then the Sahel region of the Niger Bend to their current place in the forest region of West Africa. The story also explains how the fabulous kente cloth was created centuries ago and how its name was derived.”

Published by Page Publishing, Kofi Aidoo’s engrossing book is an evocative tour de force weaving history and culture with the struggle of a modern nation determine its own future.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Dusk at Dawn” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
