Nigerian authors Emmanuel Iduma and Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀ will be in conversation at Angels & Muse, Lagos on November 23. They will be discussing Iduma’s new memoir A Stranger’s Pose.
Join Emmanuel Iduma for an evening of intimate chat on his new book, A Stranger’s Pose, a unique blend of travelogue, musings, and poetry. He will be in conversation with Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀, author of Stay with Me.
A Stranger’s Pose has been by Vanity Fair as “an impressionistic portrait-in-motion of African cityscapes, desert shadows, and lonely rivers,” and by The Atlantic as a book that “expands what writing about the continent can be by paying extraordinary attention to the ebbs and flows of human connection.”
The event is organized by Angels & Muse in collaboration with Cassava Republic Press.
Here are the event details.
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Time: 19:00-21:00 WAT
Venue: Angels & Muse, 5b Sumo Jibowu Street, Ikoyi, Lagos
