Nigeria’s Independence Day falls on October 1. This year, Amy Reads is hosting a reading and reviewing project to celebrate the country’s 51st year of independence. Amy says:
Everyone is invited to read any work by a Nigerian author or author of Nigerian descent, or a book about Nigeria, and review it during the dates of September 29th and October 3rd. The format, length, or topic doesn’t matter, all that matters is that it deals with Nigeria. Your web site does not have to be a dedicated book blog.
See her blog post for more details.
For this celebration I will focus on the following children’s literature and short stories:
- Mayowa and the Masquerades by Lola Shoneyin
- Eno’s Story by Ayodele Olofintuade
- Waiting, a short story by Chika Unigwe
