The sixth edition of Literary Crossroads organised by Goethe-Institut in Nigeria will feature Nigeria’s Okey Ndibe and JJ Bola from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Described as an astute and gripping novelist by ‘The New York Times’, the U.S.- based Ndibe will hold a discussion and read from his critically acclaimed oeuvre of two novels and a memoir, ‘Arrows of Rain’, ‘Foreign Gods, Inc’. and ‘Never Look an American in the Eye’.
JJ Bola, a poet based in the United Kingdom and whose debut novel ‘No Place to Call Home’, published by Own, is still hot off the press, will spar with the Nigerian.
The series, which brings together African writers on the continent and from the Diaspora to discuss contemporary trends and themes in literature, will have Molara Wood as moderator.
Date is Saturday, July 15 and time us 12pm at the fourth floor City Hall, Lagos Island.
