Teju Cole and Toni Kan talk in Lagos, Saturday 19th December



Lagos is a maximum city, where dreams and nightmares collide to the sound of fuji rhythms, pastorly exhortation and the growls of the generator.

Two of the most exciting contemporary writers on Lagos will discuss West Africa’s megacity and how it is read and written.

Teju Cole is a writer and photographer currently based in Brooklyn. His writing has appeared in various journals in Nigeria and the US. Every Day is for the Thief is his first novel.

Toni Kan is an award winning poet, essayist and short story writer. He is one of Nigeria's most anthologised young poets and short story writers. Most recently, Kan won the NDDC Ken Saro Wiwa prize for his collection Nights of the Creaking Bed.

For all lovers of contemporary African literature within 3 hours drive of Lagos, this is an unmissable event.
