Farafina invites you to #FarafinaReads with Lesley Nneka Arimah in Lagos. The author will be reading from her debut collection What It Means When A Man Falls From the Sky.

What It Means When A Man Falls From The Sky has been described as ‘a rare combination of daring and nuance’ by The Guardian UK, and her writing style as ‘a blast of fresh air’ by Igoni Barrett, author of Blackass. The book won the Kirkus Prize in 2017 and is the 2018 9mobile Literature Prize long list.

When: January 20, 2018 at 2 p.m.

Where: Herbert Macaulay Library, 233 Herbert Macaulay way, Sabo, Yaba.
