Literary events excite me. I like the idea of hanging out with writers and chatting about books. If you are like me, you’ll probably want to attend the upcoming book chat organized by Ignite Africa. This event is called bookversation.
What is Bookversation?
Bookversations is an honest, no holds barred literary discussion similar to An Evening Of Conversation With Chimamanda Adichie, which held last month.
Anyway, Samsudeen Alabi moderates Bookversation . And this year alone, Ignite Africa has hosted poet and psychiatrist Dami Ajayi; the mayor of Lagos, Toni Kan; editor-in-chief at NAIJ.com, Bayo Olupohunda; and most recently, African Movie Academy Awards AMAA Winner, Tomi Adesina.
This November, the Bookversatons Series will be hosting prolific author, Tunde Leye. Tunde Leye has written several books including Golden Sands, Guardians of the Seal, Afonja The Rise amongst others. He is also well known for his Finding Hubby blog series.
The event will include book sales by several publishers. Tunde Leye will also be happy to sign some books.
