We have the dates for Rosanna Amaka’s The Books of Echoes online tour. The book was featured on our 50 Notable African Books of 2020 list. With the paperback edition out today in the UK, Amaka is gearing up for a tour of her favorite blogs and instagram book accounts.
Read the publisher’s description of the book:
Brixton 1981. Sixteen-year-old Michael is already on the wrong side of the law. In in his community, where job opportunities are low and drug-running is high, this is nothing new. But when Michael falls for Ngozi, a vibrant young immigrant from the Nigerian village of Obowi, their startling connection runs far deeper than they realise. Narrated by the spirit of an African woman who lost her life on a slave ship two centuries earlier, her powerful story reveals how Michael and Ngozi’s struggle for happiness began many lifetimes ago. Through haunting, lyrical words, one unforgettable message resonates: love, hope and unity will heal us all.
