Africa's 100 Best Books of the 20th Century

During the month of February the library will display a selection of Africa's 100 Best Books of the 20th Century. These books represent a wide spectrum regarding country, language, ethnicity and subject matter. "To mark the beginning of the 21st century, and encouraged by Dr. Ali Mazrui, the Zimbabwe International Book Fair launched the international compilation of "Africa's 100 Best Books." This project [was] organized in collaboration with the African Publishers Network (APNET), the Pan-African Booksellers Association (PABA), African writers' associations, book development councils, and library associations. Nominations were sought throughout the African continent and internationally. A jury made the final decision from the short list and the final list of "Africa's 100 Best Books" was announced on February 18, 2002" (Columbia University Libraries).
