Remember when you read the collection fo stories from the Farafina Creative Writing Workshop class of 2013 titled A Handful of Dust? Remember how we rocked with the stories we put out and you digested?
Well, the ladies in that class have come together again – along with other women – to tell other stories in a collection titled Pepper Soup. Don’t you just want to read the book already from learning the name? I know I do. And it’s not just because of the name, but because I know the calibre of female writers these are. I mean, our very own Sifa Asani Gowon is in the roster!
The book is yet to debut, but below is the cover picture and covers of some of the women whose stories make up the anthology. In the anthology are twelve short stories guaranteed to warm you like a good bowl of Pepper Soup and encourage you to enjoy the little pleasures in life.
In the search for Happily Ever After, sometimes there are hiccups and pit stops along the way, let these writers warm you up with these stories of hope, self discovery, love, and of course, pepper soup.
