In conversation: My Life Has a Price by Tina Okpara

Lagos Book and Art Festival

Tina Okpara's memoir, MY LIFE HAS A PRICE, takes us on her 5-year journey to hell; from a loving yet poor childhood in Nigeria to the ordeal of modern day slavery in wealthy, suburban Paris. She was only 13 when celebrity footballer, Godwin Okpara and his wife Linda, lured her father into giving her up for a supposedly better life in Europe. Tina Okpara will share from that experience, especially on writing the memoir and the healing it brings.

Date: Saturday 17 November 2012

Time: 10.00–11.45 prompt

Venue: Freedom Park, 1 Broad Street/Hospital Road, Lagos, Nigeria

Autographed copies of the book will be available for sale at the venue at a discounted launch price of 2500 naira at the Amalion stand at the fair.
