On 23rd April, 2018, the second phase of ‘Ghana Reads’ dubbed ‘Ghana Reads! Reading Soiree & Honours’ will be held at the British Council.

The event aimed at marking 2018 World Book Day in Ghana is designed to be a mini festival of reading, showcase of books, reading workshops and honouring of individuals & institutions who have contributed in the reading campaign in Ghana.

“GHANA READS!”, a Reading initiative by Ghana Reads Initiative (and a project of the Pan African Poet/ Spoken word Artiste of 2016—Oswald Okaitei) is a literary initiative geared at encouraging Ghanaians, especially children & youth, to love reading fiction literature, promote the reading of Ghanaian fiction literature, bridge the gap between readers and authors/publishers and teach the skills & importance of reading.


At the event, there will be Reading Chain, Dramatic Readings, Read Alouds with Icons, Voices & Acts among others.

The Special Guest of Honour for the day is Honourable Mohammed Adjei-Sowah (CEO of Accra Metropolitan Assembly & the Mayor of Accra) and Guest Speaker is the former Second Lady of the Republic of Ghana, HE Mrs. Matilda Amissah Arthur.
