Azafi Omoluabi-Ogosi and Richard Ali warmly wish a happy new year to all #Parrésia authors, fans, supporters, and those who have bought into our three-year old dream of publishing quality books that keep Africa’s words in trust, one paperback at a time.
#2014 was a very tricky year for us, but we made it through.
#2015 will see the release of new titles under the Parrésia Books imprint, a continuation of the exciting work going on at Origami Books and the release of Blessing Musarari’s Cordite Books crime fiction novel. We will also continue to seek partnerships and arrangements to make our books available in all the major languages of Africa and the World, including Hausa and Swahili, German, French and Arabic. Our fans and friends can also expect to access our books on more platforms than we currently offer in this new year.
In related news, we will be releasing a new cover for Abubakar Adam Ibrahim’s short story collection, The Whispering Trees, [Parrésia Books, 2014], today, to commemorate its third print run.
We treasure each and every one of our authors, from amu nnadi to Chika Unigwe, from Emmanuel Iduma ranging through Saddiq Dzukogi and Umar Sidi to Helon Habila, Molara Wood and Victor Ehikhamenor. Each one of you is a star.
Here’s to 2015, to a great year for books written in Africa, for Africa, for the World.
Happy New Year!!!
