The 13th Lagos Book and Art festival  was a carnival of arts and culture as Writers, Poets, Dramatists and art lovers converged at the Freedom Park, Lagos Island for the 13th Lagos Book and Art Festival.

The 3 days  event which took place from November 18th – 20th, is the brain child of CORA-Committee for relevant art-aimed at translating the teeming population of Nigeria into a fine human resource through arts, literature and culture.

There were reading workshops for teenagers and children, art and craft exhibitions and panel discussions on books such as ‘Tipping Point’ by Malcolm Gladwell and ‘The World is Flat’ by Thomas Friedman.

Organizers of the Hay Festival, the biggest literary and culture event in the world were present at the event. The high point of the event was the celebration of the landmark birthdays of members of the art & culture community.

Some of those celebrated are Joke Silva(50), Yeni Kuti(50), Taiwo-Ajai Lycette(70), Richard Mofe Damijo(50), Chukwuemeka Ike(80) and Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy(60)
