<br>
Today's the last day! It's been a fantastic weekend at Africa Writes so far. Ben Okri gave a memorable and very quotable (judging by Twitter) talk on 'Meditations of Greatness' to a sold out and very engaged audience. During the day we challenged the notion of 'African romance'; we saw how travel and life experiences bring creativity to nonfiction; Frances Mensah Williams told us her inspiration behind her debut novel; we had beautifully performed poetry; a sneak preview of the British Library's upcoming exhibition on West Africa; and an audience with the 2015 Caine Prize shortlist.<br>
<br>
Here's a reminder of what's on the programme for the last day (Sunday 5th July). All of the sessions today are free and you can just turn up as usual. Don't miss our final day!<br>
<br>
Twitter users can follow the action at <a href="http://africanarguments.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a5b4dc2dec57bd289170737f2&id=30fade4183&e=deb1081e5f" style="word-wrap:break-word;color:#606060;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:underline" target="_blank">#AfricaWrites</a><br>
