The Son of the House by Dr. Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia


Contemporary African Voices is a webinar  that will be held on Wednesday the 5th of May about the book Son of the House. The launch of Contemporary African Voices, a webinar series shining a light on acclaimed sub-Saharan writers, will commence at 9 am PST. The series aims to amplify African voices and to educate by introducing stories deeply rooted in Africa written by Africans. We come to know a country by reading its writers.

In the webinar travelling virtually to Lagos, Ismaila Alfa will welcome Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia, for the release in Canada of her debut novel, The Son of the House. Pulsing with vitality and intense human drama, the novel is set against four decades of life in vibrant Nigeria, celebrating the resilience of women as they navigate and transform what still remains a man’s world.

The author, Dr. Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia, is a Nigerian health lawyer, academic and writer trained in Nigeria and Canada who works in the areas of health, gender and violence against women and children. She holds a doctorate degree in law, specializing in Health Law, Ethics, and Policy from Dalhousie University, Canada.
