Celebrating Jalaa Authors

Recently, I bought the three famous books from Jalaa Writers Collective, and I didn't regret the time I spent reading them. Jude Dibia shows his talent in Blackbird, a story of ordinary people, love and regrets. I'm still reading Odili Ujubuonu's Pride Of The Spider Clan, and OMG the dude can write. Then there's this story that is threatening the life span of our ever popular Half of a Yellow Sun. It's Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo's story of Biafra - Roses and Bullets. It's a perfect story (oya, critiques, make una draw una swords...mmmchew). You need that book in your library.

No wonder why the lady is constantly being honoured by members of the literary circle. Hear this!

Akachi will be the Guest Writer at the Abuja Writers Forum (AWF), at the Pen and Pages Bookstore, White House Plaza, Plot 79, Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja. It is an initiative of Dr Emman Shehu and it has featured an exciting array of emerging and established writers. The event is slated for June 25, 2011 by 16:00 – 18.30. Hope you'll be there. You can read more about Akachi and the Jalaa Writers’ Collective here, and also check Amazon for Jalaa Books.
