My friend, Muhtar, is a great man...
The reputable book publishers, Farafina, Nigerian publishers of Chimamanda Adichie's "Purple Hibiscus", (winner of the Commonwealth prize) and "Half of a Yellow Sun" (Winner of the Orange Prize), Biyi Bandele's "Burma Boy", Sefi Atta's "Everything good will come (Winner of the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature)" and Ngugi Wa Thiongo's "Wizard of the Crow" among others, will be publishing the book, Naija Bloggers Volume I. We stand in great company.
After an extended meeting with Muhtar Bakare, C.E.O. of the company, in which he committed his establishment to be publishers, I knew there could be no better place to have this book brought to life than through Farafina.
The book, according to Muhtar, will not be a rush job, and proper care will be taken in its production. It is intended that it is as cutting-edge(d) in content and cover, as its contributors.
Participating bloggers will be informed via e-mail of all developments.
