There is something very refreshing about spending time with people who speak your language – in this case, “book speak”
We had a great time connecting with book lovers, writers and readers alike on Saturday evening in Abuja. The occasion was the 24th Guest Writer session of the Abuja Writers Forum, AWF. AWF was started by media maverick, Dr. Emman Shehu. The forum has produced, encouraged and nurtured writers in all genres since inception in 2008.
This month’s session featured Prof. May Ifeoma Nwoye, prolific writer and novelist with several publications to her credit.
She read from her latest work, Oil Cemetery, an award winning novel about the troubled Niger Delta region.
Budding novelist and writer, Ladi Opaoluwa who just returned from a residency at the McDowell writers residency in the US.
Music was provided by the very talented Seth Ogahi.
The trio spoke about their works and future plans. The very interesting evening was rounded off with a book raffle.
