Creative writer, Temi Taiwo-Oni has concluded the first edition of “Book Versations”, a conversational review of her debut book BeGone.
BeGone is a short prose piece that narrates a story of self-redemption and the reinforcement to confront our fears.
Book Versations which held at Ignite AFRICA was graced by the presence of top professionals and literary enthusiasts including Dr. Monisola Lawal, Assistant Medical Director, Osuntuyi Medical Centre; Taiwo Oni, MD/CEO Epsellon Energy Limited; Juwon Odutayo, Author and therapist; and Author, Olumide Holloway amongst others.
Commenting on what motivated her to name the book “BeGone”, Temi Taiwo-Oni explained that BeGone is a wordplay on Be Gone and Begun. She attributed the essence of the title to Araba Cole, the main character of the story, who wanted to be gone from the unsavory situation she had found herself in, and the new chapter which began for her when life threw a change of circumstances at her.
Speaking further, Temi Taiwo-Oni explained that the story “BeGone” encapsulates the story of human experiences and how the world’s view of what is right or logical might not be entirely easy or logical to do.
She said: It’s a story that tells the public they are not alone in the fixes they find themselves in. There are people out there who understand. It’s a story to train the minds of the public to look beyond the ordinary at those around them, and be of help as much as they can to support them.”
Author and Family therapist, Juwon Odutayo believes that what the author did with the story was to chronicle the story of a woman who built a shield around herself and appeared to so many people that she was okay.
