Uju Amanambu, author of “A Broken Rose” (published by Xlibris) will be holding a book reading and cocktail event today at the Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The book is a stirring tale about a young woman who deals with abuse, alienation and torture from an impoverished and deeply religious village that stigmatizes anything strange.
It will take readers on a startling journey from an erosion-ridden, superstitious village, through the practices of a dying pagan religion to the modern world of a wealthy and influential family troubled with secrets as it follows the life of a young woman burdened with the detrimental gravity of mental illness. It is a combination of fiction, stark reality and a call for reform in a society plagued with superstition and religion.
