Update on Author’s Talk 2020


Author’s Talk isn’t simply special because of the amazing writers across the country who gather to network, learn and share while creating a new community of book lovers, but it’s also because these writers and book lovers gather in a space that promotes that unique feeling of belonging and creativity.

We cannot imagine an Author’s Talk without the artistic buildings, art works on walls, smiles, hugs and handshakes. Sadly, all of these cannot happen this year due to the outbreak of Covid_19 in more than 150 countries and with over 22,000 cases in Nigeria, and so, we have come to this difficult conclusion that #AuthorTalk2020 can not hold this year.

We understand the frustration and disappointment this must cause to some of our annual author’s talk attendees and 2020 prospective panels, but we ask that you please bear with us as we work together to ensure the safety of everyone in our community and yours.
We’ll be back next year, stronger and ready to explore the art of writing and publishing in Africa. Until then, please stay safe and keep writing!
