Chibundu Onuzo shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize, Best Published Novel 2022
We are very pleased to announce that SANKOFA by Chibundu Onuzo has been shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize, Best Published Novel 2022.
Niso Smith, Founder of The Wilbur & Niso Smith Foundation, commented:
‘Adventure is about possibility, taking chances, opening your mind and often your heart. We don’t always have a choice whether to take the adventure or not, it takes us. Each of these books fizz with the energy of unexpected adventure. They will transport you and teach you something new about the way you see the world.’
The Foundation encourages readers to select the one that appeals to them most, then read, share and recommend.
Of SANKOFA, the Foundation commented:
‘We adored SANKOFA – a lot of discussion at our roundtable about Anna’s journey, decisions and strength of character. Huge congratulations to Chibundu on a fantastic novel!’
The winner will be announced on the 21st September 2022.
