A Book Review : Collective Amnesia by Koleka Putuma

Hey Guys!!!

I’m back with the Book Reviews. I was going to follow a schedule and say “watch out for book reviews every Sunday”, but I really do not know if I would be able to stick with the schedule. I can only try!

Remember I have a website dedicated solely to everything LITERARY – BOOK REVIEWS, BOOK EVENTS AND LITERARY LIFESTYLE of our favourite authors are creatives. So please do well to stop by THE AFRO READER and subscribe so you don’t miss out on any of the fun stuff!

Here’s a review of Collective Amnesia. I wouldn’t call it a review per se…but…Yeah Enjoy Still! 😊

The Love You Give Yourself Is The One That Will Heal You – Kamnelechukwu Susan Obasi

Beautiful People!

How have you all been?

The Afro Reader website is up and running and I am excited about the many ideas in my head. 

I started a series : CONVERSATIONS!

Conversations is a weekly interview series with some of my favorite poets, novelists and book enthusiasts. 

Kamnelechukwu is as beautiful as her name. Her voice is a blend of milk mixed with purehoney. I first heard her talk at the Author’s Talk programme organized by the Kate Tales Foundation. I have always been a fan of her work but it was really great putting a face to the art. And so when the website was ready, she was top on my interview list. In this interview, she talks about her book BRAVE, photography, her phobia for flying roaches and her friendship with Romeo Oriogun – Winner of the 2017 Brunel Prize! All in 20 Simple Questions! When I read through the email, I felt as though I had come out of a liberating theraphy session. 

Kamnelechukwu is a Documentary photographer and storyteller from Ebonyi, Nigeria. She holds a degree in Computer Science. She acted as a contributor for the NORTH IS NOT NOT team whilst travelling and changing narratives about Northern Nigeria in 2016. Her Ongoing Project seeks to document the male body and its issues which it rather chooses to internalize by using silence as punishment and also defiance as well as how it deals with the decision to define ourselves, name ourselves and speak for ourselves than have others do it for us.

Her work has been featured on KONBINI, ELSIEISY and SISTER NAMIBIA. 

This interview has a lot of soul! Enjoy!
