Celebrating the World Book Day: Lagos Schools Tour by: Dr. Bayo Adebowale, the author of Lonely Days
The World Book Day has been designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries around the world.
As Nigeria joins the rest of the world in celebrating the World Book Day, Dr. Bayo Adebowale (author of the best-selling novel “Lonely Days”) embarks on a tour of schools in Lagos from 13th to 27th March 2017 to share his joy of writing and reading with students in presentation full of visual props and ready to use ideas.
The novel, Lonely Days, has been prescribed by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) as a prose work for the 2016-2020 Literature-in-English examinations. This prose work is popular among teachers and students of literature in secondary schools in Ghana, Sierraleone, the Gambia and Nigeria.
In a 90 minute session, the author would do the following:
- Read to the students from the book;
- Engage in a critique of the book;
- Do a pep-talk on creative writing. A pep talk from a pro can spark even the most timid young writer;
- Entertain questions from students and chat with them as he signs and personalizes their books.
You can bring the fresh perspective of a working writer to your students by inviting Dr. Bayo Adebowale to your school.
