A professor from University College London is set to give a talk on Mali, as part of a series of talks at Sudbury Library.

The twinning of Sudbury and the town of Yanfolila was launched by current mayor Robert Spivey last year.

On Wednesday from 7.30pm, Professor Kevin Macdonald will give a free talk at the library, entitled Mali’s Age of Empire: Sundiata, Mansa Musa and Timbuktu.

Professor MacDonald will speak about his 25-plus years of researching the past of Mali and its characters.
