Commemorating Black History Month author Bòláji Ajayi starts a book tour with AKITI THE HUNTER

 

San Francisco based author kicks off her book tour bringing children a new connection to their heritage in celebration of diversity.

 

New York, New York (January 30, 2015)—With the national celebration of Black History Month upon us, author of AKITI THE HUNTER (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/akiti-the-hunter-bolaji-ajayi/1120909956?ean=9781909302884), Bòláji Ajayi will be starting her tour of book signings and readings in the Bay Area. The innovative book adapted from a West African folktale chronicles the heroic battle of an action figure like warrior who conquers a great foe. Ajayi will be hosting book readings at four Barnes and Nobles locations around the Bay Area, introducing children to a super hero unlike any they’ve ever seen. The tour will kick off Sunday, February 8th, 2015 in Silicon Valley and continue through Black History Month.

“In 2015 we will pay respects to our forefathers who have paved the way for our generation to embrace freedom and in doing so, it is our responsibility to empower our young brothers and sisters to see a world that has no limits,” stated AuthorBòláji Ajayi. Such is the story of AKITI THE HUNTER. An immortal being derived from folklores that dates back to the 18th century in African History.

Children from the United States to Africa are thrilled at the thought of having a hero they can finally identify with.

This is the 1st of 5 series, and this book is already in talks with major networks for a conversion into an animated series. Ajayi is determined to make the NY Times Best Sellers list, and her ultimate dream, is to see children from a diverse background standing in line to add to their bookshelves stories of AKITI THE HUNTER.

Book Message Excerpt: "The Moral of the story is, always believe in yourself, no matter how great and big you opponents may be. The only strength you need is the strength of your mind. And the best way to exercise your mind is by reading. Read as much as you can, whenever you can, and never stop reading and training your mind. Even if you think you know everything, keep reading."

Ajayi believes her mission cannot be achieved alone, “Parents from various cultural groups have to create precedence for learning, and if the stewardship was not there before, AKITI THE HUNTER is a sure way to build the excitement for their children to be eager to read and learn so much more”.

Celebrate you Black History Month, by introducing your son or daughter, or niece or nephew and grandchildren to the tales of AKITI THE HUNTER. And sit back and watch their world transform right before their eyes, because now they have a hero and he looks just like them.
