Tomorrow being the Friday the15th of November, I shall be hosting a program tagged "The Joy of Reading" during the Lagos Books and Arts Fair. From 3.30 till 5:30 a number of young, vibrant writers will be celebrating the sheer joy of reading with me by reading excerpts of their favorite stories. Its going to be totally brilliant.
Below is a banquet of brilliance that will be set before you:
Tolu Talabi is an alumni of the Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop
Has been published in Kalahari Review, 5x5 lit mag and is the fiction columnist for The Guardian's Sunday Magazine.
Adeola Opeyemi is a visual artist, a bibliophile and a writer. Her works have been published online and in print.
Poet and lyricist, Servio Gbadamosi works with young emerging writers across the country by creating multiple platforms to provide more visibility for their works and facilitates knowledge exchange between them and established culture-practitioners.
Pearl Osibu is a Nigerian writer from Cross River State. She is a Fashion designer and a writer/blogger. Her works have appeared on several publications, among which are Jetlife Magazine, Sentinel Nigeria E-zine, CharlesNoviaDaily, and on her blog (fifty shades of Me), which has been described as "fearless, brilliant and lunatic."
Others are Iweka Kingsley, who will be reading from his short story collection, Dappled Things, Kenetchi Uzochukwu, Femi Morgan and a host of others.
Honestly, you don't want to miss out on this.
