Everyone’s heard of the Booker and the Pulitzer, but how about the Caine Prize? African writers like Wole Soyinka have won major literary prizes including the Nobel, but prizes have also been established specifically for African writers. But what makes writing or a writer African? Come to the African Studies Library to explore this question, and discover the works of some prizewinning writers you may not already know.
