‘Sensuality in New African Writing’ at #AkeFest16

I feel very fortunate to have been invited as a guest to the 2016 edition of the Ake Arts & Book Festival. In a few hours I will be speaking on a panel entitled, ‘Legs Open, Eyes Closed: Sensuality in New African Writing’ alongside some amazing writers including Kiru Taye, Chinelo Okparanta and Toni Kan. If you are at the festival come and join us in conversation, and if you’re not, make sure to check out the livestream.

  • the title is very funny, legs open, eyes closed.

  • Once again, I was so jealous that I could not attend again this years #akefest2016.

    I love how you just appeared in Lagos and disappeared even after promising me that you will breeze by. Its all good. I followed on twitter and watched the live streaming.

    Nice one sis.

  • It is, isn’t it @kwunume, I’ve been thinking about the title and if I had my way i would have changed it to ‘Eyes Open, Legs Open’

    @ms butterfly – sis Lagos was merely a transit point o , let’s not count it when I merely transit through en route to Abeokuta 🙂 Thank you so much for following the livestream and Twitter convos. I met a sister who is a fan of Adventures and told me she heard about the site through you so thank you for spreading the word, and the amazing work you do. Hugs

  • Kiru!! I absolutely love her and can’t wait for the next book.
