For the month of August, we recommend for your reading pleasure, Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree by Adaobi Tricia Nwabuani. These books were part of the 11 longlisted for the 2019 Nigerian Prize for Literature.
Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree is the experience of a young woman who was captured by Boko Haram. The story is told in stark, poetic vignettes. It is a harrowing story of survival and hope in the darkest of places.
