This Friday, the 31st of July, 2020, we will be having a tweet-meet with Ndubuisi George, the author of Onye Gba Nkiti. The theme for the tweet-meet is “Writing Back Home: The Igbo Literature Neo-Renaissance”.
About the Book
Onye Gba Nkiti is a new book written in Igbo. The book is a brilliant look at how the Chi (the Personal Spirit of an individual) is crucial to an individual’s self development. It uses colourful images to tell a wonderful story that both young and older readers will find very interesting.
The book was published by Purple Shelves; the tweet meet is also powered by them.
Join us as we talk about what it means to write back home, why writers are now writing in the Igbo language, as well as the reasons for this awakening, and what impact this would have on the culture and the language.
Date: the 31st of July, 2020.
Time: 6pm – 7pm.
