First Five: The Art That Makes Us.

Remember the book that changed your life? The song you’ll never forget? Join poet and host Yomi Ṣode in conversation with Paul Mendez (author of Rainbow Milk), as they chart through a musical journey and share the art that changed them.

Come with your shades and dancing shoes on! Though the event will be hosted on Zoom, it will be the summer literary fun we all need in lockdown. You can share your thoughts and questions during the live event on Zoom.

If you’re unable to join via Zoom, the  event is also being streamed live on our Facebook page. Due to the technical nature of hosting the event virtually, we cannot guarantee that a question posted on Facebook Live will be answered. 

This is a 16+ event. Conversations may contain strong language, stories may be quite explicit depending on the topic matter. Audience discretion is advised.



This event is part of Africa Writes’ 2020 online series as a response to the international lockdown most are facing in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Read more about this here.
