Biography

John B. A. Agandin

John B. A. Agandin was born in Sandema. He went to Sandema Secondary Technical School and St. John Bosco’s Teacher Training College before later going to read Geography at the University of Ghana. He had a huge appetite for story telling from the stories his mother told under the bright moon light at home and later developed a keen interest in literary and cultural works whilst at Bosco’s. As a teacher, he sought to help his students appreciate literary works especially those of their own culture. He was in charge of cultural activities in Sandema J.H.S and helped to organise the inter-schools cultural festival in the Sandema zone in 2007. It was in this process that the idea of compiling the popular folktales of Asuom was conceived and started. This is the first collection.
