DUE NORTH

2018 Gold Winner for Best Travel Book – SATW Lowell Thomas Awards.

In the 1990s, I had an encounter with a book. A map. In a geography class in Nigeria. My eyes followed lines. Latitudes. Longitudes. The Greenwich Meridian. The Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. My eyes went north. They rested on a point at the very top of the world. “I will reach the North Pole,” I said to my teenage self… And it remains my elusive goal.

Due North is a collection of travel observations, reflections, and snapshots spanning two decades across colors, cultures, and continents.

Judges’ Comments – Gold Award
Born in Nigeria, educated in America and living in Sweden, this writer/ photographer views the world from a unique perspective. Her “snapshots,” verbal and visual, are full of life and insightful. The book is organized by the direction the author traveled and provides layered stories of the cultures she encountered.

WORKING TITLE

AFRÖSWẸDẸ explores timely social issues, from class to immigration, yet is written in a breezy accessible tone.

The novel follows three different Black women who each find themselves starting a new life in Stockholm, Sweden and who are each linked in varying and uncomfortable ways to the same influential white man.

Christa Desir: “Every once in a while a book comes across your desk that you can’t stop thinking about. For months. AFRÖSWẸDẸ was that book for me. I can’t tell you how many people I talked to about it in the office. It was like having an extended book club. This book cuts to the bone on so many fronts: racism, tokenism, immigration, the hypersexualization of Black women. I am absolutely thrilled to bring this to Sourcebooks Landmark, and have the opportunity to partner with Lola in bringing her beautiful, timely, and essential story into the world.”

Publishing as a lead hardcover from Sourcebooks in Summer 2021.
