In Nigeria, there are many places for lovers of music, wine, and other forms of entertainment to unwind but there is hardly a place for book lovers to socialize or work. Litcaf is that lounge where the music is not deafening and the lights are not dim.
Art lovers in Lagos will love the new literary hub opening this Saturday.
Litcaf, a place of books, discussions, coffee and WiFi, seeks to promote the reading culture and nurture literary talents by giving them the opportunity to work out of or gather at the hub.
The first book cafe, located on the first floor of E-Center (Ozone), Yaba, Lagos will open to the public at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2013.
At the opening ceremony, Victor Ehikhamenor and Emmanuel Iduma will read from their books, alongside other budding writers. There will be musical performances by award wining Jodie, and soul singer Bemyoda. The event will also feature spoken word performance by Obii, winner of the first Naija Poetry Slam.
Farafina books will be on sale at the event. See you there.
Art, Life and Love.
