Book ‘n’ Gauge is at it again! This month, we will be featuring Eghosa Imasuen, author of Fine Boys (published by Farafina Books).
Imasuen was born on 19 May, 1976. He is a medical doctor and lives in Warri, Delta State. His short fiction has been published in online magazines like blackbiro.com and thenewgong.com. His first novel, To Saint Patrick, was published by Farafina, and his latest work, Fine Boys, has been warmly received in literary circles. Eghosa will be reading from and discussing his latest work.
Clay (Bianca Okorocha) is a pop/rock singer and songwriter based in Lagos, Nigeria. In addition to writing all of her own music, Clay has written for other artists. In 2011, Clay released her first official single, “Ogadisinma,” and it put her name on the lips of several fans.
Christine’s signature pop-blues style was first noticed when she won an MTN-sponsored talent contest in University of Jos, Plateau State, in 2005. But it wasn’t until 2007, when she beat over three thousand other contestants across Nigeria to win the Nokia First Chance music reality TV show, that her incredible talent was first showcased on a national scale. Her sound is a profound combination of alternative soul and R&B, with a mild pop twist, and it resonates the truth of personal experience.
There will be an auction session where you can get the latest books and CDs. There is also a surprise ‘X’ auction item; but you’ll have to come to find out what it is.
