Q: “Are there bookshops in Nigeria?” A: “I think it reflects very poorly on French people that you have to ask me that question,” “My books are read in Nigeria. They are studied in schools. Not just Nigeria, across the continent in Africa.”
The next conversation put a focus on The New African Literary Voice, engaging Writer and Editor, Adebola Rayo; Literary Critic, Jerry Chiemeke; and Creative Writer, Toni Kan, in a personal-view based discovery of which authors are fresh and are making impact, what it means to be fresh, and if they are making personal efforts to be fresh, as writers and as critics of writers.
