First Black American Woman for Booker Prize

Do you know who's there for the shortlist to win the Booker Prize?

As you may not be aware of, we got in it the first ever black African woman for her novel about a 10-year-old girl who tried to escape poverty and tried to graze better lands in the US. Only to find out that she will be having new set of problems along the way.

Our first Black African novelist is no other than Ms Bulawayo - Elizabeth Zandile Tshele, her real name, with her literary work "We Need New Names".
Elizabeth Zandile Tshele is the first Zimbabwean to be included in the selection to win the said prestigious prize.

The winning author will be revealed on October 15, so keep abreast with the updates.

Booker Prize is awarded each year to the chosen "best original full-length novel, written in the English language" by any citizen of the "Commonwealth of Nations", including Ireland and Zimbabwe.

The first ever Booker Prize awarding was in 1969.
