The readings/jam session/reviewwas started four years ago to honour those who make the Shortlist of the$100,000 Nigeria Prize for Literature, NPL. The objective is to make theShortlisted work and its author known to the members of the public by creatingconversations around the work and the author. Our conviction is thatbeing on the Shortlist is already a certification that the Writer with hiswork is one of the very best; and as such a Winner even at this stage of the competition.
It promises to be a mini-Literary picnic – talking, wining, dining andfun -- celebrating Nigeria’s literature and the creative spirits of our land.
The gate is FREE but come promptly, please.
