By Akada Children’s Book Festival
The Akada Children’s Book Festival (ACBF) is a fun event to showcase children’s books written by African authors, or books written for a diverse audience of children. To the best of our knowledge, ACBF is the first Nigerian book festival specifically for children. The inaugural event took place on April 27, 2019 at the British Council in Ikoyi, Lagos and attracted over 1400 attendees. In 2020, the festival moved online bringing #Akada2020AtHome to audiences across the world. The 3rd edition takes place from July 1-3, 2021. Visit akadafestival.org for more details.
