IF YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW........

Nigerians are going places. Chimamanda Adichie just won Britain's Orange Prize for Half of A Yellow Sun. She is the FIRST AFRICAN to win it in the 12 year history of this particular book award. Hopefully, the day will come when things like this won't be astonishingly surprising - just an "oh of course" kind of surprise. Congratulations to her! If you still haven't read the book......DO IT!
