The Society of Young Nigerian Writers (SYNW) under the leadership of Wole Adedoyin is set to launch three electronic books. The books are; Senator Abiola Ajimobi: Memories, Dreams, Reflections of a Mind Always in Motion, Get Consent (a poetry and essay anthology against rape and violence against women) and END SARS Voices (another poetry and essay anthology on police brutality, battery and assault).
Senator Abiola Ajimobi: Memories, Dreams, Reflections Of A Mind Always In Motion gives account about Ajimobi’s life and times as experienced and written by different authors who submitted their works for the anthology.
Get Consent Anthology on the other hand is aim to combat violence against women, using writing as one of the sensitization and awareness tools and to change community attitudes to violence against women.
END SARS Voices Anthology gives voices to some voiceless members of the society with whom we have together condemned Police brutality, assault and battery in Nigeria.
The three books will soon be made available on popular bookstores like Amazon, Okadabooks and Obooko.
