Umar Abubakar Sidi, the author of The Poet of Dust (Konya Shamsrumi) is unveiling and reading from his new collection titled Like Butterflies Scattered About By Art Rascals.

The reading and discussing session is taking place on the 9th of July, 2022 at Platinum Theatre, Azny Place, Louis Drive, off Abacha Road, Port Harcourt city by 3:00pm.

Like Butterflies Scattered About By Art Rascals is published by Masobe books and publishing company.

Ismail Bala, bilingual poet, academic and author of Line of Sight (Praxis Books), in a blurb, says, “like O’Hara, Sidi appears to be more concerned with process than with any finished product: his poems from his first book to the present one are less about anything than about the process of the poem composing itself.”

Carl Terver, critic and author of For Girl at Rubicon, described Sidi as “the ancient labour room of stars. It takes amounts of cosmic pushes to birth his species.”
