Chibundu Onuzo elected into the Royal Society of Literature
We are proud to announce that Chibundu Onuzo has been elected into the Royal Society of Literature.
Chibundu was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in June 2018 as part of its 40 Under 40 initiative, which honours “the achievements of Britain’s younger writers” with the selection of a new generation of fellows.
Chibundu Onuzo started writing novels and short stories at the age of ten and less than a decade later became the youngest woman ever signed by Faber. Her debut novel, THE SPIDER KING’S DAUGHTER (2012), was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Etisalat Prize, shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Commonwealth Book Prize, and won a Betty Trask Award. Her most recent novel, WELCOME TO LAGOS, was published in 2017 and has been reprinted three times.
