The Sunshine Book Club Discuss Chinelo Okparanta’s ‘Under The Udala Trees’
The Sunshine Book Club read ‘Under The Udala Trees’ by Chinelo Okparanta last month (February). Book lovers and enthusiasts gathered at lifestyle store and café Quintessence on February 25, 2017 in Ikoyi, Lagos for small chops and of course to discuss the book of the month.
This month’s meeting has the most number of people in attendance. Boy has SBC grown!
Okparanta’s book brought up fierce debate about the civil war, Nigerian history, culture and sexuality.
This month (March), we are reading ‘Blackass’ by Igoni Barrett.
Other recommendations in the selection of book of the month included:
And After Many Days: A Novel by Jowhor Ile
Nights of the Creaking Bed by Toni Kan
From Caves of Rotten Teeth by Igoni Barrett
Fine Boys by Eghosa Imasuen
The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma
I Do Not Come to You by Chance: Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani
The next Sunshine Book Club meeting holds in Lagos on March 25, 2017.
