The city of Yenogoa comes alive as it plays host to members of the literati who have gathered for the first Bayelsa Book and Craft Fair. Already there is a line up of Nigeria’s best scheduled to attend this event.
It will be an opportunity to buy books, artwork and most importantly, networking! If you are a young writer, this might just be the opportunity you have been looking for!
From creative writing workshops to book readings to spoken word sessions, the organizers have put together an impressive line up of events.
Writers expected at this event include Professor Akachi Adimora Ezeigbo, Odia Ofeimun, Wale Okediran, Molara Wood, Jude Dibia, Toni Kan, and our very own Eghosa Imasuen.
This is the first edition and Farafina will be there to attend to your literary needs! So, if you are in Yenogoa, please visit our stand! Fair holds at the Niger Delta Wetland Centre, Ekike, Yenogoa and begins on the 24th and ends on the 26th of March, 2011.
