Google doodle celebrates Chinua Achebe



If he hadn’t died in March of 2013, one of Nigeria’s most popular novelist, poet, professor, and critic, Chinua Achebe would have clocked 87 years of age today.
That is why Google is honouring the late Albert Chinụalụmọgụ Achebe with its doodle today.

The novelist was born on November 16, 1930. His first novel Things Fall Apart (1958), often considered his best, is one of the most widely read book in modern African literature.

Anambra State has been exporting legends to the world from time immemorial.

Achebe is the second Nigerian  to be celebrated by Google.

Coincidentally, the two individuals from Nigeria celebrated so far by Google are from Anambra State.

Happy posthumous birthday to Chinualumogu Achebe!

Anambra to the world
