Yes yes! I met the great one. I was very excited. I think I have mentioned before that I love Chimamanda. Imagine my joy and excitement when I finally got to meet her yesterday at the book launch and reading of Eghosa Imasuen’s Fine Boys. And I just found out that she’s married! Has been married for 2 years, in fact! My last is heavy mennnn…
I also like Eghosa. I had engaged him online before now so I liked his online personality but I also like his person. I can’t wait to devour Fine Boys. I am still searching for his other book, To Saint Patrick. The only time I ever saw the book, I didn’t have enough money to buy it and now Eghosa says it’s out of print 😦
Did I mention that he has twin boys? Yes he does! I didn’t get to see his wife (or maybe I saw her but didn’t know) but I know she is beautiful. I know these things… Chimamanda gave them Igbo names by the way.
I met a few tweeps (twitter people). Beautifully amazing people, I tell ya!
Ebere gave me the most beautiful hug ever and Chioma smiled a smile that melted my insides… Hehehehehe.
I officially met Tolu Ogunlesi (@toluogunlesi) but I didn’t get to introduce myself to @femkevanzeijl and @victorsozaboy 😦 Someday soon sha.
But I had an amazing time. This was my first book reading and I am sure I have to attend more, much more.
I wish I could re-live the day again and again and again…
