Questions For Ada #WorldBookDay

As a bibliophile I was happy there was a World Book day yesterday. Especially in a age where we are fully engaged constantly on screens and tech devices.

Recently I have been discovering so many writers of Colour which is awesome because I think representation in literature is very important. My favourite book that I read in February was Questions For Ada by Ijeoma Umebinyuo, she is an amazing poet and writer. For myself as British-Nigerian in my twenties in the diaspora, the intimacy and the relation to her words were like a “undoing” for me. From the beginning to end each poem evoked true emotion and I can’t wait for Ijeoma to write more books.
