We’re so excited about this upcoming weekend and for good reason! The wheels of Farafina Trust have been chugging extra time over the past one week as they (Farafina Trust is a sister organization) have been hosting their annual Creative Writing Workshop with Chimamanda Adichie. Several award-winning and celebrated African writers are indeed in Lagos to help facilitate this workshop. These are Adaobi Nwaubani, Binyavanga Wainaina, Chika Unigwe, Niq Mhlongo, Ama Ata Aidoo, and Sade Adeniran.
Well, all the hard work has been done and now it’s time for the finale party. This is where Farafina Books, of course, loves to join in the fun! To celebrate the end of the 2nd Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop, Chimamanda Adichie will be fete-ing the visiting writers, and Commonwealth Prize Winners, Adaobi Nwaubani, author of I Do Not Come to You by Chance, and Sade Adeniran, author of Imagine This, will also be reading from their work.
Seun Kuti and the Egypt 80 band will also be performing live!
Date and Time: Saturday the 29th of May 2010, 3pm
Venue: Lagos Civic Centre
Be there or be….square! (for lack of a better phrase).
