  1. Thank you for publicizing the SDG Book Club Africa’s Call for Submissions.

    In the title, the word submissions is spelt wrongly as: submmisions

    Submissions with just one m and a double s, is the correct spelling.

    I hope you don’t mind the correction. To leave the typographical error would be to undermine what is a good and helpful article.

    Thank you for publishing it.

    My best,
