  • Adichie (Nigeria) –¬†Purple Hibiscus,¬†Half of a Yellow Sun
  • Emecheta (Nigeria) – The Joys of Motherhood
  • Ngugi (Kenya) – Wizard of the Crow
  • Baingana (Uganda) – Tropical Fish: Tales from Entebbe
  • Lalami (Morocco) – Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits
  • Gourevitch (Rwanda) – We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with our Families
  • Ilibagiza (Rwanda) – Left to Tell
