Uwem Akpan reads in Lagos

Author of Say You're One Of Them Uwem Akpan is involved in a lot of promotional activities in Nigeria all of a sudden, as publishers and reading groups suddenly wake up to him, following the selection of his short story collection for the inflential Oprah Book Club. Though based in Nigeria and accessible, he'd been pretty much left to his Jesuit priest life here, until now.
Akpan had a reading at the Rainbow Book Club in Port Harcourt in recent weeks. Now he comes to Lagos for a major reading engagement at Terra Kulture, in an event co-presented by Ibadan-based publishers, Bookcraft.
