We are delighted to welcome Chika Unigwe to The Africa Centre to discuss her latest book, 'The Middle Daughter' with Derek Owusu on 30 August.

The Middle Daughter is the story of 17-year-old Nani who discovers womanhood through hardship before finding her freedom and independence. She loses her beloved sister and father at an early age, and misunderstood by the rest of her family, she is beguiled by an itinerant preacher, a handsome self-proclaimed ‘man of God’ who seems to offer all the answers. However, instead of that leading to a better future, Nani is soon propelled into challenging womanhood.

Chika Unigwe is a Professor of Creative Writing at Georgia College, USA, and the author of several celebrated works of fiction including On Black Sisters’ Street, which won the NLNG Prize for Literature worth $100,000, and most recently the short story collection Better Never Than Late (2019).
