Pictures from Meet Chat Buy Naija Books

On Saturday 25th of January, we had the first Meet, Chat and Buy Naija Books event hosted by Patabah Bookshops, Shoprite, Surulere. We had such a great time, and the Patabah staff were nearly overwhelmed by the number of people that turned up. Tlsplacer be steady repping. What’s more people bought plenty books. The record was a lady who bought almost Forty Thousand Naira worth of Naija books for herself and her kids. It is proof that Nigerians not only read free Nigerian works online, but are willing to pay for Nigerian Books when they can find them to buy.

Channels Book Club was on hand to cover the event and it was shown yesterday Tuesday at 3:30pm. There’ll be a rerun on Friday at 3:30pm. Many thanks to all the writers that came through. Dimeji Ojo, Ayo Sogunro, Walter Uche, Myne Whitman, HaroldWrites and Folasade. I look forward to having another event soon.

Don’t forget to keep voting for your Write Right Finalists, we’re in the final lap.

Enjoy the pictures.

      • When I lived in Abuja 15 years back, there used to be a good bookshop; CSS Bookshops at Wuse 3, close to the Post Office at Wuse 3, behind Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I got some great books there. I dunno if it still exists though..
        Peace++

  2. And I appeared in only two pictures *Sigh* And while one was super dope, the other was just there. *sad* On the other hand, Ayo Songuro and his book dominated these shots! GEJ must set up a committee to look into this.
    Thanks for this initiative TL.
