So much has been happening on the Nigerian literary scene these days. From the popular BookJam to the Farafina book review and recently, Celebrity Read Africa, one can say that Lagosians are gradually catching the book reading fever. However, it appears that this fever has now spread beyond Lagos to Abuja. Not only has BookJam been introduced in Abuja, other literary events have found their way into the capital city. One of such events is Infusion.
Infusion, founded by Dapo Oyewole and Lola Shoneyin in January 2010, is a literary event that holds on the last Thursday of each month. It is an avenue for lovers of art, literature, music and entertainment to meet in the lovely environs of JB’s Grill in Maitama Amusement Park, Abuja, to enjoy good poetry, art, music and literature.
In line with the organisers’ mission of promoting books on Africa, especially those written by new authors of African heritage, Infusion will be hosting Eghosa Imasuen, a Farafina author, at the August edition. The event starts at 6.30 pm today and promises to be a time of edutainment with an artistic ambience. What’s more? Eghosa Imasuen’s To Saint Patrick and other Farafina titles will be available for sale. Now, here’s one event you can’t afford to miss if you live in Abuja. See you there!
