Eghosa Imasuen

Eghosa Imasuen is the featured writer in the Writers Project of Ghana reading series for June. He will be doing readings of his works at the Goethe Institut Accra at June 24th from 7-8pm. There will be a short discussion session after the readings.

Eghosa Imasuen is the Nigerian writer of two books, To Saint Patrick and Fine Boys. The former is an alternate history murder mystery about Nigeria’s civil war published by Farafina in 2008. The latter chronicles the voices of Nigeria’s post-Biafra generation and you can read my review of the book here.

The Writers Project of Ghana (WPG), if you are new to the organisation, is a literary organization based in Ghana and the United States that promotes a literary culture in Africa and around the world. They do this using public readings and poetry recitals, a weekly live-on-air radio program, and writing workshops, amongst others.

Previous readings this year include writers like Phillippa Yaa de Villiers, Kwei Quartey and Joe Frazier.

So if you are in Accra towards the end of the month then I suggest that you make it to the Goethe on the 24th. And buy books people. That’s the only way Eghosa will pay those bills.
