WM College hosts Natty Mark Samuels London Book Launch

On Thursday 9 May WM College hosted its first book launch event in the newly refurbished Grade II listed library for author Natty Mark Samuel’s new book ‘The Encyclopedia of Rootical Folklore’.

Natty Mark Samuels travels to botanical gardens, youth centers, and carnivals throughout the U.K. telling stories and singing the songs of African and Caribbean flora. In 2009, he founded the African School, where he teaches classes on African folklore, art, and culture. As a friend of WM College, Natty has visited the College many times to deliver insightful and inspiring talks to learners on the subject.

WM College were thrilled to be chosen as the location to host the London book launch which saw Natty Mark Samuels give a reading and signed copies of his new book. ‘The Encyclopedia of Rootical Folklore’ is available to buy online on Amazon, Afroribooks, WHSmiths, World of Books, Bookshop UK and many more.
