Event | An Evening of Poetry, Music, and Conversation with Gbenga Adesina and Kechi Nomu at Angels & Muses, Lagos

African Poetry Book Fund (APBF) and Angels & Muse—Victor Ehikhamenor’s artsy co-working space—is bringing to Lagos an intimate evening of poetry, music, and stimulating conversation with Gbenga Adesina and Kechi Nomu, two of the best known Nigerian poets of the new generation. The event is themed “Private Histories, Bodies and Radical Tenderness” and will be moderated by the poet Efe Paul Azino, founder of the Lagos International Poetry Festival.

Adesina and Nomu will read from their APBF-published chapbooks—Painter of Water (Akashic Books, 2016) and Acts of Crucifixion (Akashic Books, 2018), respectively—as well as from newer works “that center love, loss, the body in flux, the body as history’s site, tenderness, feminism, reimagining masculinity, and intimacy.”
