CELEBRATING BUCHI EMECHETA

The Brunei Gallery in central London, will host an all-day celebration of the life and work of the acclaimed Nigerian novelist Buchi Emecheta, who passed away in January this year.

As a novelist and story teller Buchi Emecheta touched the lives of many people, and continues to inspire a new generation through the example she set as an immigrant, single mother of five children who rose to became an international literary figure.


This anniversary event will be a celebration Buchi Emecheta's life and work as well as an opportunity to hold a public conversation about her legacy.

The event will include a curated installation of The Life and Times of Buchi Emecheta, panel discussions, dramatisations of excerpts from two of her best know novels, music and dancing and of course Nigerian food.

Also expect a colourful cultural tribute from members of the Ibusa community in London...

The official launch of the Buchi Emecheta Foundation and Omenala Press' exciting new edition of Buchi Emecheta's books will take place on the same day.
