Book lovers in London are invited to a public reading by Victor Ehikhamenor and Nkem Ivara from their new offerings. On April 6th at the Africa Center on King’s Street, stop by to get a taste of Ehikhamenor’s Excuse Me! that was recently described by UK Guardian as “a book of wit and humor.” Excuse Me! is a collection of essay that includes “funny pieces drawing heavily on the experiences of everyday life in Nigeria as well as from the lives of Nigerians abroad.” Ivara will read from her soon to be  published romance fiction titled, Closer than a Brother. A sneak peek that I strongly suggest you don’t miss. I know this because I am presently reading the novel and have added it to the list of forthcoming Brittle Paper reviews.

Ikhide Ikheloa, the Nigerian critic, who recently enlightened and entertained us with his razor-sharp literary wit will moderate the event alongside Ike Anya. Inua Ellams will also be there to entertain the audience with his poetry performance. It promises to be a fun event, so mark your calendars.

Date: April 6, 2013

Time: 2:00 pm – 5:30

Venue: African Center, 38 King Street, Covent Garden London, wc2e 8jt
