Sorry to hear this, Knola. Like I mentioned in my post, I got the info on the readings from another blog.

The Lagos reading for January 5 was held as scheduled and I attended that one. I don't know why the PH one did not hold. Perhaps the schedule was changed at the last minute.

Here is the contact info for the publishers, Farafina. Perhaps they have more info:

234-1-270 2370
234-1-270 2371


I will try to add the organiser's contact information to future notifications, so that people intending to attend the readings can confirm that it is still happening.
