Nigerian literature across generations
Presented by Aké Arts and Book Festival
Listen to Efe Paul Azino, one of Nigeria’s leading performance poets and the director of the Lagos International Poetry Festival. The poetry session is followed by a cross-generational conversation between the authors Bolatito Adebayo and Mobolaji Adenubi. Using their novels as a reference point, the conversation will offer insights into the experience of Nigerian women who are unable to conceive or bear a child, and how society’s attitude towards them has changed. Their conversation is moderated by poet and journalist Wana Udobang.
