The Emotion Book Party Takes Over!

To be wholly devoted to some intellectual exercise is to have succeeded in life – Soren Kierke Gaard
    An intellectual is a man who takes more than necessary to tell more than he knows – John Adams.

The Emotion Book party is born out of the great need to marry intellectualism with entertainment, while at the happy end promote the reading culture in Nigeria. It is a brainchild of The Emotion book club, a literary organization strongly bent on building the leaders of tomorrow through books.
We believe Nigeria is encountering problems socially, politically and economically because the Nigerian society is either misinformed or rather not informed at all.
The Emotion Book Party Takes Over is a great platform for the Nigerian public to be informed about books and its informative capability.
That is why we are enjoining Nigerians local and abroad to join us in taking over streets and homes with the Good news of The Emotion Book Party.
