Here's the author of Measuring Time Helon Habila talking at the NuMetro Bookshop, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Saturday 17 November. It was the first date of his book tour of Nigeria, organised by, Cassava Republic Press. Some 80 people turned up to hear Habila apparently, which is a healthy audience for a literary event, even by UK standards.
Habila is touring 5 Nigerian states, appearing in both Nassarawa & Abuja today, Wednesday 21 November. He moves on to Jos tomorrow Thursday 22nd; with 2 events in his home state of Gombe on Friday 22nd (see details on flyer).
