The Association of Nigerian Authors has released three works of juvenilia as the latest additions to its Nigerian Writers Series 2. They include Oma the Drummer Queen by Salamatu Sule, The Loyal Queen by Chinyere Obi-Obasi and The Golden Girl of Galama by Kabiru Abdullahi.
ANA President of the association, Denja Abdullahi, informed that it was a culmination of over a year process of competitive call, sifting through manuscripts and arriving at a group of three adjudged publishable by the series editors. “With these books, ANA’s A-Book-A-Child nationwide project is set to run. Congrats to the authors,” said Abdullahi.
The series was made possible by Yusuf Ali (SAN), whose 2017 grant to the association, was used to finance the publications. The series editors include Prof. Uwemedimo Iweketok, Ikeogu Oke and Omowunmi Segun, while Osorobu Igudia serves as the Managing Editor, NWS Publishers, an imprint of ANA.
