Over 50 scholars in 5 Cities will be presenting papers in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Flora Nwapa’s 1st book, Efuru. At least 15 secondary schools in each of the 5 cities will be presenting drama sketches, essays and quiz competitions.
Flora Nwapa was not only the 1st African female novelist, she was also the 1st African female publisher. Tana Press, founded in 1977 is back in business with the publication of the “50 Anniversary Edition of Efuru” which had been out of print in Nigeria for many years.
Please join us in Lagos (Nov. 29), Maiduguri (Dec 1), Abuja (Dec 3, Dec 6), Enugu (Dec 8) and Owerri (Dec 9). Each event begins at 10.am (See attached programme of events).
