This free event is open to all who wish to learn more about the late novelist. It will feature –
Tributes to Buchi Emecheta
A short film of her life
Readings from her works
A panel conversation and discussion on her influence and her legacy…
Plus – an opportunity to view and obtain her new books
Though Buchi, who died in January 2017, was an internationally renowned figure, her books have been out of print in Nigeria for many years. This book-launch aims to ensure that quality imprints of her works are now available in Nigeria in affordable and accessible formats.
Six titles are currently available in the new memorial edition – published by Omenala Press, the covers designed by the artist Victor Ehikhamenor.
A further four titles are scheduled to appear in the autumn.
