Award-winning authors Toni Kan and Leye Adenle will be reading from their wave making novels, ‘The Carnivorous City’ and ‘Easy Motion Tourist’ today Wednesday, November 23, 2016, at the well-appointed Rele Gallery on Lagos island.
The duo, fresh off their appearances and well-attended events at the Ake festival, will be treating the audience to readings from their novels in a session that will be moderated by novelist and columnist, Eghosa Imasuen. The theme for the evening is ‘Writing Sex and Crime in Lagos’.
Describing Adenle’s debut, the blurb says “with Easy Motion Tourist’s astonishing cast, Tarantino has landed in Lagos. This page turning debut crime novel pulses with the rhythm of Nigeria’s megacity”, while Toni Kan’s new novel has been described by Helon Habila as a novel that brings Lagos to life “like no other book I have read.”
Cocktails start 6pm while the reading kicks off at 7pm.
