Baileys Prize-nominated novelists, Ayobami Adebayo and Yewande Omotoso, will be in conversation in Lagos. Their discussion, which can be attended for free, is part of the Goethe-Institut Nigeria’s “Literary Crossroads—Conversations with African Writers,” a series which “brings together African writers on the continent and from the diaspora to discuss contemporary trends and themes in literature.”
Ayobami Adebayo is the fourth African to be shortlisted for the Baileys for her debut novel Stay With Me, while Yewande Omotoso made the longlist with her second novel The Woman Next Door.
The conversation will be moderated by Molara Wood.
