This weekend in Lagos, The Ghost of Sani Abacha ‘comes of age’ in its 21st reading since the international launch on the 9th January, 2012 in Asaba.
The reading holds at Quintessence Stores, Ikoyi, Lagos, at 3pm on Saturday 27th October. It is happening in the middle of Nigeria’s Moslem holidays so the mood over electric Lagos should be mellower than usual. Naturally, entry is free and drinks and light refreshments are on the house.
This event follows on the heels of the 20th reading on the book tour in September at Ghana’s Goethe Institute in Accra, and the 19th reading at the Guernsey Literary Festival, in the Channel Islands. There are still a few ports to call in, though, to hit the target of 26 readings for the 26 stories in this 2012 anthology of tales. Still on the Calendar: Douala, Nairobi, Kampala… to stay in the loop, make sure you are signed up for my email updates.
See you Saturday.
(And if you have the collection already, come all the same. There will be a preview of new books dues out in 2013)
