Lola Shoneyin was recently at Spine & Label Bookstore in Abuja, Nigeria. She read from her celebrated novel The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives. The event was hosted by Abdulkareem Baba Aminu.

Shoneyin read to a full house. Spine & Label shared photos of the event on Instagram, noting that they had “an amazing time connecting, laughing, and reflecting with old and new friends.” Shoneyin’s reading “made the character come alive” and sparked  conversation.
