Best-selling author of the Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman series, Bola Essien-Nelson, will be involved in an October 4 book signing at the Laterna Bookshop on 13 Oko Awo Close in Lagos.
This is the first time the author, who recently released the third book in the diary series titled: Diary of the Desperate Naija Woman Last Year, will be signing her books in the country. The event, which is organised by Laterna Ventures, will begin at 12 pm and is open to the public, while admission is free. Refreshments and souvenirs will be available for guests. However, the biggest prize for the day will be signed copies of Essien-Nelson’s books.
The Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman is a collection of random blogs written by the author in the year stated in the title. It takes the reader into the life of the author. Everyday ordinariness viewed through her pen assumes an extraordinary stance embedded with lessons of life. There is a lesson to be learned from every blog in the book that reads like a conversation with the author during which she celebrates her joys and analyses her losses. She is an ordinary person, like most people and is desperately chasing after an extraordinary God.
The book reading is co-sponsored by Freolpere Nigeria Limited and friends of the author. It follows a similar one for Pastor Mrs Nkoyo Rapu on June 28..
