Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


An Orange Prize for A Yellow Sun

By on June 8, 2007

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie just won the 2007 Orange Prize for Fiction for her latest novel – Half of a Yellow Sun.

I have to confess that although I have a copy of the book, I have not read it yet. One thing I do know is, judging from my past experience with reading her writing (The Purple Hibiscus) once I pick it up, it will be hard for me to put it down .

A summary listing of her previous writing as well as articles about her is available here

Photos of the award ceremony are available at Molara Wood’s Wordsbody

Congratulations to Ms Adichie
