Words Rhymes & Rhythm Publishers invites all book lovers to donate used and new copies of books by Nigerian authors for our Library project which we plan to unveil on Saturday, December 1st, 2018 as part of activities lined up for the 2018 edition of the annual WRR Literary Festival – ‘FEAST OF WORDS’.
Our target is to donate 1000 books to students of our host institution – the INTERNATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL IBADAN, in furtherance of our overall aim of promoting literary excellence in Nigeria, specifically among young writers.
This project find validation in these statements:
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.” —Katherine Patterson
“I believe it was my love for reading that gave birth to my love for writing. Every writer is first a reader.” — Tolu Akinyemi
You can be a part of this project by either donating your used books, buying new books, or sending us copies of books you authored. We are also open to financial support.
