Join us as Ukamaka, author of Ogadinma shares more insights into her book – Ogadinma; or everything will be alright. 

Described as a modern feminist classic, the book tells the story of the naïve and trusting teenager Ogadinma as she battles against Nigeria’s societal expectations in the 1980s, a time of coups, food shortages and religious extremism. 

With so many societal and cultural issues laced in this book, you will be enthralled by the exceptional character of Ogadinma.  

The book is beautiful but yet heartbreaking, it will leave you emotionally raw after reading this.
