Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity of hearing Kenyan writer, Ngugi wa Thiong'o speak at the 2018 Bay Area Book Festival. Ngugi wa Thiongo is one of the most prominent African writers today and has often been on the Nobel Prize's radar for quite sometime.
Since I had never even heard of Ngugi wa Thiongo prior to 2018, I thought it would be fitting to highlight his writing once again here on my blog!
I still have his novel, Petals of Blood, in my 'to be read' pile at home waiting to be read!!
