The names and the prizes have been announced. The portion of African writers (or writers with with African roots) is significant. The Prize is named after two Americans, one an author, the other an actor and reviewer. Their names are Donald Windham and Sandy M. Campbell. This literay prize is based at Yale, that is also the place where later this year the recipients will gather at Yale for a conference on thier writing and writing in general.
And in a few more minutes you read about the African winners. Just have a little patience.
