You can vote here, unfortunately you can only choose from a preselected list of 3 English and 3 French books. Voting runs from October 15th through November 15th, 2013. The result will count as one vote within the jury. My ere ibeji book was also considered, but unfortunately not selected among the final three by the jury; find it here in the list.
Bertrand Goy’s Côte d’Ivoire. Premiers regards sur la sculpture 1850 – 1935 is definitely my favourite book in the list, a must read.
