When we speak about love
Hardly do we mention
That love is also painful
Love has cheers
Love is conscious
Love needs work
Love needs renewal
Love needs determination
Keep at it
Don’t let it become
An untended garden
Happy Vals Day

On Saturday 10 January 2015, Kofi Akpabli and I had three sessions of readings at Totally Youth, North Ridge from 11am till 4.30pm, with the audience also reading their favourite excepts and chapters of our books.

The second session was jam-packed!
We are grateful to the moderators of the sessions: Anny Osabutey (1st session), Kwame Gyan (2nd session) and Kinna Likimani (3rd session).
The Q&A sessions were engaging as well, with incisive questions and deep thoughts shared.
The audience read as well!
This year, Get Caught Reading!
Kofi and I are grateful to all the media houses who gave us support and space to tell our story, and also came around to cover the event: GTV, eTV, Multi TV, TV3, Radio XYZ, Citi FM, Joy FM, Live FM, Starr FM.
Together, we can and should vim-mify (don’t reach out for your dictionary, please) the culture of reading again.

Finally, we are so grateful to the Writers Project of Ghana (@writersPG) who organised the book reading and signing. WPG is doing great things for Literature in Ghana. More on this later this year. Thanks, WPG; thanks Martin, Nana Yaw and team.
Get Caught Reading.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
