The Book Club

It is amazing how much more free time I find I have when I'm in Nigeria, I actually read a book in two days, time I just could not spare in England. To capitalise on this I have decided to join a book club, started by a very good friend of mine and open to all.

Please see details below if your in the area:

A story is always better if you have someone to share it with. For those who enjoy literature and for those who wished they did!!! This is an exciting and new way to come, discuss, review and express your thoughts regarding a book you have read.

We intend to read a book every fortnight then come together to share our views and opinions. We will rotate through themes and genre’s, for example, African literature, Asian literature, autobiographies, Romance, Classics etc. But to start with we will be discussing Half of a Yellow Sun, By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

It will be a fantastic and fun way to get a better understanding of the books. As this is a group exercise, it will mean that everyone gets to participate and at a point pick a book for the group to read.In general, we would really be putting the fun back into reading. Most importantly we can make new friends and form good relationships through a shared interest.

Initial Meeting: Saturday 13th/09/08

Time: 2pm

Venue: Posh CafĂ©, Mega Plaza, Idowu Martin’s St, Lagos

Please bring 2 book suggestions!!!Jot down the pages that you enjoyed and would like to discuss
