Farafina Trust Literary Evening, July 2nd

The Farafina Trust Literary Evening is upon us again. Only once a year, the 2011 edition will close the latest Farafina Trust Writing Workshop.

Details are now out for a literary evening the highlight of which is an interaction with Njabulo Ndebele (author of 'The Cry of Winnie Mandela').

Tash Aw, Faith Adiele and Binyavanga Wainaina and the initiator of the workshop, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, will also read.

A 'New Nigerian Writers' segment will feature Eghosa Imasuen and Jumoke Verissimo. This bit also includes, puzzlingly, Odia Ofeimun. Why a poet who published his seminal collection 'The Poet Lied' as far back as 1980 will be classed a 'new' writer, is beyond me, but there you have it.
