Most of you might already know that I partner with Farafina, the magazine and marketing/brand management of Kachifo publishing. They supported the contest I held over on Naija Stories with free books and their editors eyes for the judging. Naija Stories is a website where Nigerian writers can share their stories for feedback from other writers and readers and also a social network. Farafina Books is also about telling our stories so I think it's a great partnership.
In furtherance of promoting Nigerian reading culture and literature, Farafina organizes these monthly book reviews at TerraKulture in Lagos. Check it out if you're there.
The monthly Farafina book review will be happening again on Saturday, the 7th of August, 2010 at TerraKulture, Tiamiyu Savage, VI starting promptly at 3p.m. Join us as we review the Weaverbird collection, a collection of short stories by authors such as Tolu Ogunlesi and E.C Osondu and edited by Sarah Ladipo Manyika amongst others. Stories in the Weaverbird collection are lively, compelling and more importantly, they are reflective of the Nigerian political and cultural landscape. Come express your points of view, discuss the themes of the stories, or maybe get writing tips from our accomplished moderators: Tolu Ogunlesi, Ayo Arigbabu, and Tade Ipadeola. Who knows, you might even win a free book! You can't afford to miss this!
