Few achievements give her more pleasure than that of having brought to life literary liaisons that are now a key feature throughout Nairobi. Founder of the kwani? Readings as far back as 2003, and thereafter the kwani? Poetry Open Mic, June Wanjiru Wainaina hosts the Sunday Salon, Nairobi, held every third Sunday of the month at Kengeles, Lavington Green. In another life she was a technocrat, having developed the curricullum for and taught a six-month course in Computer Repairs and Maintenance at Egerton University in Nakuru, Kenya. For now, getting all kwani? Poets onto facebook is her goal.
