One of the highlights of the recently concluded Port Harcourt Book festival is the convening of the Africa 39 gang.
20 of the 39 writers flew into Nigeria about a week ago to share their work with festival attendees.
These photographs are proof enough that they all had a great time. Friendships were made instantly. From what I hear there was a good bit of camaraderie and lots of love and fun times.
But if you’re looking for some inside scoop on what went down, the person to talk to is Ukamaka Olisakwe. Read her beautiful journal on the African 39 hangouts in Port Harcourt HERE.
