IWD2018: Women in publishing keeps the light burning and we celebrate them

Today on International Women’s Day at Cassava Republic Press, we celebrate and pay homage to women in publishing; women who work hard behind the scenes as agents, publishers, editors, publicists, bloggers, booksellers and designers to help realise the dreams of the authors you love.

Lagos in the Literary Imagination through 10 books

Of course, we are excited about Lagos Noir and we thought we would whet your appetite with 10 Lagos books. Whether it is your favourite Nigerian playground or your most fearful, let us take you on a literary tour across Lagos so you can understand why Lagosians fondly call their city: eko akete ilu ogbon (Lagos, city of iniquity, city of wisdom).


According to Ozy, 'What Sunny Saw in the Flame' by Nnedi Okorafor is a book to add to your reading list!

Nnedi Okoroafor’s young adult fiction, What Sunny Saw in the Flame, published in the U.K. and Nigeria by Cassava Republic Press (the book is referred to as Akata Witch in the USA), is the first story in a series that sees the heroine, Sunny, an albino American-Nigerian girl of Igbo ancestry, and her group of friends, take on evil forces that are bent on destroying the world.
