  2. At last. Have always wanted to criticize someone’s writing but how do we compete when we don’t hear much about nigeria books and autors in nigeria. Thank God to VOA, CNN and internet we know who chimamanda and kaine agary are.

  3. This is good. The Emotion book club plans to review Seffi Attah’s Everything Good Will Come By Seffi Attah in two weeks, on their site- emotionbookclub.wordpress.com. They also plan to read the book publicly when they meet by first week in June.

  4. *This competition will be held again in 2012 for books published between June 1, 2011 and May 31st 2012. Winners of the Sentinel Literary Quarterly Short Story Competition will be announced on April 30th, 2011.
