When The Abyssinian Boy came out two years ago in 2009, I had a lovely book tour. It was well organised and I had fun travelling around Nigeria, reading to people, talking about the book and meeting people I've always dreamed of meeting. At one of my readings in Abuja, at Transcorp Hilton, ace broadcaster Eugenia Abu was sitting behind me. At Regent School, former Information Minister, Chukwuemeka Chikelu gave me a gift. At another one, actor Jide Attah told me how he was transported to India after reading my book.
As I get ready to travel to Delhi to launch the Indian version of the same book, coming out from Serene Woods, I upload some of the pictures at my colourful reading sessions.
Eugenia Abu sits just right behind me. And publisher of Cassava Republic, Bibi Bakare was there that night and also asked me questions during the Q & A session.
The Indian community too was well represented as they followed me up on each successful reading I had.
Oh yes, Mr. Jerry Adesewo was of help. He's one of the most amazing writers you will ever come across too.
It was the Abuja Literary Society that played host to me and they make you feel like a star!
It is always fun signing out your books!
