Woman Eat Me Whole by Ghanaian poet Ama Asantewa Diaka was published on April 5 by Harper Collins. At an event that took place in Accra, Diaka officially launched the book in Ghana.

You can read our review of the book here, in which we highlight Diaka’s “rich representation of the female body and experiences against the backdrop of societal expectations while drawing from her experiences in Ghana and the US.”

The book launch was well-attended and engaging, as you can see from the teaser below. Diaka looks gorgeous in an adire/gingham corset dress. It was an evening of poetry reading and fundraising. Money was raised get free copies of the book to 10 secondary schools. If you are interested in contributing towards this initiative, send Diaka a message on Instagram @poetry_asantewa.
