On Saturday, 28th of October, 2017, Aimees Library in conjunction with Praiseworld Radio (Africa’s #1 Online Urban Gospel Radio Station) hosted various Authors, Readers, Influencers and Kids at #ABookInHandLIVE 2017: Readers Meet Authors. It was such an amazing platform for Readers to connect with Authors and other Influencers, chat around various topics relating to writing, and how it influences everything about life and living. No doubt, it was a time of FUN, one we would love to relive over and over again.
Surgeon, OAP and Humanitarian, Dr. Yolanda N. George-David, popularly known as ‘Aunt Landa’ paid a surprise visit, throwing everyone off guard. The gathering was just right. A mix of Parents, Youths, Kids and she touched on everyone in such a short time, stressing on the need to begin to leverage on information, push to acquire more knowledge, and most especially, allow our future generation access to resources that they need to thrive!
We had a great time with our guests, Ufuomaee, Author of “The Church Girl”; Ojay Aito, Author of “Night of a Red Moon”; Just Omomo Ibe, Author of “Rule as a Boss, Rock like a Mum and Slay as a Wife”; Ejiro Osakede, CEO Mixsie Audio Books Ltd (Nigeria/Ghana); Bimbo Akinsanya, Covener “Bimbo And Friends”; Pastor Nomthi Odukoya, who was ably represented by Bisola Soneye, Coordinator Fundawazi Foundation; Temitope Jalekun, Creative Director Glintz Media; Olusegun Olaoke “Cheggon” (The Fear Doctor); Adesewa Greg-Ighodaro, Author of “Chosen – Novel & Prayer Memoir”; Yobolus Ayopo O., Author of “Once A Pawn By Night” and GAMiE, Spoken Word/Rap Artiste together with other authors and book lovers.
Our friends, The Dream Catchers thrilled the audience with their amazing dance moves during the #MakeAnImpression hour and after the event, were able to raise donations worth 50,000 naira. According to the Director, Dream Nurture Foundation, Seyi Oluyole (feature writer on Tinsel), this will go a long way in supporting the kids’ welfare especially feeding and we look forward to being able to do much more.
