Agbozuadu Uneme Omoarelogie, Editor of Explorer Magazine in Ewu Book Fair Yesterday!
Ewu 6th November 2021.
Yesterday the 5th of November 2021, I attended the 3rd edition of Ewu Book Fair at Kings Stars Hotel, Idunwele, Ewu, Edo State Nigeria.
The dream and aspirations of the organizer of the epic annual event is to promote books, authors, culture and arts.
As I attended the 3rd edition, the desire to replicate such a landmark of an event in my Village, Clan, LGA was all over me.
Because an event like this will not only be evident now but in the future. Just as the reading culture of Africa is dwindling, if the few whose desire is to build a career in writing is encouraged, it will help to sustain and develop our arts, culture and tourism potentials.
Meeting Miss Ivie Ahianbale, a 15year old SS 1 Student of Ikekato Secondary School Irrua, reading her book, hearing and watching as she and others engaged themselves in debates left me spellbound.
It therefore behoves on me that we must help younger generations and those with the desire to write to develop such potentials.
May God bless you my brother, my friend and a very respected Fellow Of The Pen (Godsent Jomo).
