Chinua Achebe: Things Fall Apart

This year there is time for a literary celebration for it is 60 years ago that the now famous novel Things Fall Apart was published. It has been written by the Nigerian author Chinua Achebe. It was a publication during the last days of the colonial rule. The novel showed the clash between the old days of tradition and the new days of the colonial invasion. I must be one of the most widely read books by an African author.

In London (United Kingdom) a special meeting will take place to celebrate this novel and its birthday. Read about it here.
