Akada Book festival holds April 27 in Lagos
Clever Clogs Books, responsible for the popular children’s picture books, Diary of a Toddler, Kobold the Antelope; Tobi Visits the Conservatory and the soon-to-be-launched Why You Do You Wash Your Hands? is set to hold the Akada Children’s Book Festival (ACBF). The book feast holds on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
According to a statement by the organisers yesterday in Lagos, the event is going to be “a celebration of children’s literacy and the joy of reading.”
“The objective of this book festival is to promote literacy among children and bring back reading and writing culture, which is scarily almost dead.
“The festival, which is set to be a fun literacy initiative, will be hosted on the British Council premises in Ikoyi, Lagos,” the organisers said.
To this end, the festival organisers are thrilled to welcome some of Nigeria’s most renowned children’s book authors, illustrators and story tellers to its first ever book festival. Entry is free, however, registration is compulsory.
