Atinuke is a Nigerian storyteller and author who now resides in Wales. She was a storyteller for many years telling traditional stories from Africa that had been ‘worked’ on by centuries of storytellers. Then in 2007 she wrote her own book for children called Anna Hibiscus.
She wanted to describe in a story what life was like in Africa; the middleclass, affluent, modern Africa that she knew. This has been followed by a number of Anna Hibiscus books and other titles.
She comes to Oundle highly recommended and we are really looking forward to meeting her and hearing her stories.
