Chinua Achebe Nov. 16, 1930 – March 21, 2013
I read this iconic book by writer Chinua Achebe, years ago. It was the thought provoking and tragic tale of strong-headed village leader Okonkwo, that haunted me for days after I finished the last sentence. It made me question what whose values are more important and beneficial to my life – my own, or those who I might wish to emulate.
Today, one week after Achebe’s passing, I urge you to pick up a copy if you haven’t already.
