Nigeria, in fact Africa as a whole has lost an Icon! Literary giant Chinua Achebe passed on yesterday March 21, 2013 at the age of 82 in Boston, Massachusetts. At his death, Achebe was a Professor at Brown University in the U.S. He will be remembered more for his fictional work which focused on the Igbo tribe of Nigeria. His most popular novel, Things Fall Apart, is known worldwide and is easily the most read book of an African author. Things Fall Apart was listed recently by Oprah.com as one of the “5 Books Everyone Should Read At Least Once”! We are so proud of Chinua Achebe and his works; he will truly be missed!!
