Inspired Speaker Series-Ben Okri

Now N1000

Obviously, there’s a lot going on the international literary scene and Ben Okri is one African writer whose participation in these events is quite visible. The Booker prizewinner and author of several novels(there are so many of them!) is undoubtedly a force to reckon with in this generation of African writers. Born in Nigeria in 1959, Okri has always promoted the rich and diverse African culture through his works.

On the 21st of September, 2010, Ben Okri will be the special guest at the Inspired Speakers Series holding at City Inn Hotel, Leeds, United Kingdom.

Unable to attend because you live in Nigeria? Not to worry, the book for review next month (Farafina hosts a monthly book review) is Starbook by Ben Okri. So, your choice, you could either attend the event in London or join us at TerraKulture, V/I on September 4 by 3p.m!
