The first and largest Nigerian book festival for children, Akada Children’s Book Festival (ACBF) is set to hold its 4th edition in Lagos.

The publisher and convener of the ACBF, Oluwabunmi Abodunrin Talabi, disclosed this in a press briefing recently.

According to her, the 2022 edition of the ACBF will be a one-day physical event as opposed to the 2020 and 2021 editions held virtually due to the Covid restrictions. 

She also stated that the book festival themed, ‘Together Again’ will be graced by 24 children’s book authors from around the country.

She said, “The ACBF is a showcase of children’s books written by African authors or books from around the world written for a diverse audience of children.”

One of the children’s books authors, Mariam Longe, who was present at the press briefing, stated that she wanted to use her book to lend her voice to save vultures from going extinct by teaching children about them from an early stage.

The ACBF is also set to reward deserving children from across Nigeria in the Writing and Illustration category, with N100,000 for the first price winner, books and other prices for runners-up.
