Last December, Abuja bookstore Page & Palette hosted a reading of Chike Frankie Edozien’s memoir Lives of Great Men. Published in the US by Team Angelica, in South Africa by Jacana Media, and in Nigeria by Ouida Books, Lives of Great Men is the first memoir by a Nigerian about LGBTQ+ life. It received the 2018 LAMBDA Literary Award for Best Gay Memoir and was a finalist for the Publishing Triangle Awards.
