Imbube African book festival and awards

Imbube-Logo-src-grey

ímbubé : (noun) Zulu word for Lion

This festival & awards was inspired by this quote from Chinua Achebe:

“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter… Once I realized that, I had to be a writer. It’s not one man’s job. But it is something we have to do, so that the story of the hunt will also reflect the agony, the travail — the bravery, even, of the lions.”

 

The Festival is a daylong activity that includes TED-style talks by prominent members of the literary community, panel discussions on different literary activities, award sessions for short story writers, exhibitions and book signings.

Speakers & Panelist at Imbube 2017 include: Debola Williams, Enajite Efemuaye, Steve Harris, Toni Kan, Edirin Edewor, Ini Akpan and more
