Turn The Page Africa extends an invitation to you, and your friends, to the next #TTPBookMeet, which will take place on Friday, March 10, 2017, in Hive Colab, Kanjokya House, Kanjokya Street, Kampala, Uganda, starting from 17:30.
We will be having a retrospective conversation about Othuke Ominiabohs’s Odufa: A Lover’s Tale, our common text for the month of March, 2017.
Ominiabohs, in his debut novel, graphically chronicles the entire the entire gamut of emotional experiences of a tumultuous affair of young lovers. Laying bare each nerve strand in its raw sensitiveness, and cutting open each delicate naked vein bleeding with life, Ominiabohs unfolds with startling, and moving candour, the joy and pains, hopes and longings, sorrow and despair of a fragile love which, against a sea of overwhelming odds, fights for its survival and salvation.
Ominiabohs visited Kampala, Uganda, when his East African tour brought him to these parts of the world. While here, he held a reading, and signing at the Alliance Francaise de Kampala, both events held in proud association with Turn The Page.
Turn The Page has previously reviewed this very title, for the benefit of illustrating, briefly, its concerns of interest. The review, penned by Lynn Turyatemba, can be read here.
Copies of Odufa are available, for purchase, on Turn The Page’s online bookshop, which is currently accessible via books.alextwino.com.
We will be delighted to share your, and your friend’s, ever wonderful company.
