AUTHOR READINGS

Since 2005 we have held reading sessions with authors. They are usually the authors of our Book-of-the-month. These session have been hosted, pro-bono, for years, by Le Meridien, Port-Harcourt. These sessions afford readers the opportunity to interact with the authors and to have their books autographed.

BOOK PRESENTATIONS

Since 2005 we have provided a platform for authors to formally introduce their books to the public, using our wide contacts in the book world for the public presentation of good books.
