Noop! The only way i can show up in these photos is to Photoshop myself onto one of them or be reincarnated with these beautiful people at Celestine Eleven, Shoreditch where the book reading took place.
Let’s rewind a bit. Valerie’s JJC Handbook is a bestseller on OkadaBooks with over 425 downloads and No. 12 on the bestselling Nigerian books of 2016 list by pulse.Ng. It was a huge success for a first-timer (JJC). More details on the book’s website HERE. I posted a review of the book and why you should get a copy HERE
Valerie finally decided it was time to officially launch the book and sign hard-copies for us on the 19th of August, 2016.
In attendance at the launch were:
Poetolu read two poems from his book ‘I laugh at these skinny girls’. Emeka BNC read four of his poems from his early days as a poet. <3, Cherrelle Morris, a new artist displayed some of her arts on the walls and the event was planned by Kenn Obi – So amazing Entertainment & Events.
Venue: Celestine Eleven, Shoreditch
Time: 7.30 Pm
It was attended by about 45 people including various bloggers and socialites.
