Sefi Atta to launch new children's book in Lagos

October is the season for book lovers as we anticipate the renowned Ake festival. Before then though, Lagos welcomes Sefi Atta to launch her new books.

Keep Sunday, October 14 free as Sefi Atta, playwright and award winning author of “Everything Good Will Come”,will be present to launch her first children’s book Drama Queen at the Simi Johnson Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The book will be published by Mango Books, an imprint of Quramo Publishing, who say that Drama Queen “tells the story of 12-year-old Timi Aziz, who has a lot to say about the perils of being in an all-girls boarding school.” Timi who is given a diary for her birthday gets into a series of scrapes when other people read the entries in her diary leading to very exciting and eye-opening incidents.

In typical Atta fashion, the story unfolds against the backdrop of the February 13, 1976 coup, thus providing a profoundly historical context for readers both young and old.

However, it caters to mostly children between the ages of 9-11.

If you are planning to miss it, don't, because the event will feature a book reading and discussion, followed by a book signing. The event is open to the public.

Atta will also be a guest at Ake Book Festival on Friday, October 26, 5:40-6:40 p.m., where she will also talk about her new novel The Bead Collector.
