Read, Talk, Drink (coffee): Introducing LitCaf

Any one who knows me will know that I love to read (and I’ve also been looking for a makeshift office since Salamander won’t come to Lagos). So, after one white house amala trip, my friend, Rayo, remembered that she was to check out some place in E-Center. Being the good friend that I am, I went along. Not a bad choice too cos I found my new awesome place to hang out, LitCaf.

As the name kinda implies, LitCaf is a Literary Cafe, the first of it’s kind (to my knowledge) in Nigeria and minus the chairs, it is any bookworm/writer/reader/needer of work space in a relatively serene environment/coffee addict/collaborator’s dream place.

I don’t have all the details about how the place works yet, but we’ll find out soon because they are set to open to the public at 1pm tomorrow (Saturday, 2nd March, 2013). LitCaf is located on the first floor of E-Center, Yaba, Lagos and their mission is to promote the reading culture and nurture literary talents by giving us them the opportunity to work out of or gather in a conducive space surrounded with lots of coffee and books. (Someone say Amen!).

For the opening, Victor Ehikhamenor and Emmanuel Iduma will be reading from their books, Jodie (of Kuchi Kuchi fame) and soul singer, Bemyoda, will be performing and  there will be a spoken word performance by Obii, winner of the first Naija Poetry Slam.
