Ace Ankomah embarks on a nationwide reading tour

Legal Practitioner and Author, Ace Anan Ankomah will be embarking on a nationwide reading and engagement tour, starting with Takoradi in the Western Region.

The event will take place at the SSNIT Hall, near the Central Police Station, on Sunday, June 16, between 1pm and 3pm.

He will be reading from his well-received book "Is There Not A Rant?"

This comes after enthralling readings in Accra and Kumasi which had patrons hooked on his sharp wit, incisive insights and intriguing excerpts from his book as well as broad discussions on national issues.

“Kumasi was different. The audience bought the books right there and then and turned the pages as I read. Some wrote notes! I look forward to Takoradi. I spent my preteen years there and it’s home in more ways than one,” said Ace Ankomah.

The 'Ace Read book tour' is being organised by DAkpabli & Associates and since 2015, the firm, founded by two Ghanaian writers, has championed book reading and related literary activation events across the country.

The group believe that a reading nation becomes a thinking and forward-looking nation and so this campaign is part of the agenda for transforming the nation through the promotion of book reading for pleasure across Ghana as well as local authorship.

Under this series so far, Ace Ankomah was hosted to read by the Calvary Charismatic Centre Conference in Kumasi, last month.

Ace Anan Ankomah is the author of 'Is There Not A Rant?', a collection of essays on socio-political issues in Ghana seen through the lenses of a lawyer and was published by DAkpabli & Associates.
