Book Club 50 was founded in April, 2018 with the sole purpose of bringing like minded persons together to read and review books.
We have overtime invited authors to our meetups to help us through the journey of understanding their books better.
Book Club 50 meets once every month in Parks, Cafe’s or Restaurants within Abuja.

Hello! My name is Obidi and I’m the founder of @bookclub50. It was an initiative for people to build a personal hard copy library in their houses by participating in meetings and buying books.
We started officially on the 8th of April 2018 with 12 people in attendance; lately we are geared towards SDG4. We are so excited that we’re turning 1 in April!
For our anniversary, we have agreed to visit a rural community and donate a portable shelf of books to selected schools. We have collectively agreed to visit two schools in a rural location. Effective International school is a struggling private school in a rural community in Nassarawa state, the government school in that location is in shambles, nobody attends anymore.
We will be donating a portable library of 100 books to two schools in the selected location. Honestly we do not have anything in our purse to pursue this mission, it’s a passion that should come true and I know it will, by 2023 we hope that a significant number of children would have had a better Orientation and view about a couple of issues that affects the world.
We need you to give out of the little that you have, don’t ever think that your money is too small, with N50 we can buy erasers, pencils and school books for this children.
We hope that you join us as we push this dreams by changing the world our little way.
Kindly donate via this payment page secured by Paystack

Lost Identity We were the art,that created the artefact.We were the freedom,That gave birth to the masonry.The original, Behind the originality. In the mind,Of the lettered ones; the technology,In the heart of the forest,Is a beauty,that never sleeps. The heart of the demi gods,Bore the fairest of all creatures. We were not lettered;Our greatness,Was beyond the pen.The …
Lines are drawn, Ropes of red fall. A look in the mirror. A barrage of hatred. An ache felt from within. Pain felt in all places. Longing for darkness. But Yin always has a Yang. So it stops. Now the lines are short. Careful. Hidden. The pain is deep. Distracting. Welcoming. A compromise. Death to …
The BookClub 50 would be ably represented by Obidi Ojochide on Beat FM 97.9 Abuja by 10AM, 27th March, 2019.
