A Beautiful Idea…

With the fire-eaters, the kakaki-ists, the ornate, sequin clad horses and the breathtaking traditional poetry, Northern Nigeria has a rich cultural heritage. Joining Sudanese author Leila Aboulela in Kaduna are a host of new and established literary voices like Zaynab Alkali, Toni Kan, Richard Ali, Odafe Atogun, Edify Yakusak and many more. There will be fascinating booklogues, stimulating panel discussions, riveting performances, art exhibitions, film screenings with poets, authors, artists, musicians, filmmakers and thinkers. We’ve even thrown in something for the foodies. Get ready to enjoy the fragrant dishes of Syria at the tasting event. For everyone with a sweet-tooth, join us on Friday 7 July and get to taste a wonderful array of desserts from Northern Nigeria. 

Kaduna Book and Arts Festival is brought you by the Kaduna State Government, in partnership with the Book Buzz Foundation and the Gusau Institute.
