CORA Book Trek holds Saturday
The Committee for Relevant Art, CORA, will hold its sixth Book Trek in 2019, the fourth at Quintessence Gallery, this year, on Saturday, July 20.
Dele Farotimi, author of Do Not Die in Their War, is guest at the event and he will be reading from his new book.
The event runs from 2.30pm to 5pm and will be very interactive.
“Do Not Die in Their War is an important treatise that weaves the lessons of our history, identifies the ignoble cast of characters in whose hands our dreams died, and more critically offers us timely warnings. It is a frank and informed narrative to which Nigerians will all do well to pay good attention,” says the film documentarist Femi Odugbemi.
Farotimi, a lawyer, is a veteran of the struggle to make sense of democracy in Nigeria.
Odugbemi notes, “the author was in the trenches in the dark days of military rule when democracy seemed the panacea for all our ills as a nation.”
