The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency

On this day in 1966, the Republic of Botswana was formed, declaring its independence from the U.K.. You can learn more about this African land if you check out Alexander McCall Smith‘s series that begins with The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Life in Botswana is the backdrop to this gently humourous, sometimes sad but mostly delightful series. Come get it from your school library!
