Heinemann Educational Publishers is pleased to announce the publication of two new titles in our acclaimed African Writers Series.
The African Writers Series has been published by Heinemann since 1962. The series has been a vehicle for some of the most important writers Africa has produced. It has ensured an international voice to the continent’s literary masters including Chinua Achebe and Ngugi wa Thiong’o.
The series includes over 60 titles by nearly 40 writers from 19 different countries, ranging from stories and poetry to biographical writings and essays.
The AWS Classics is a brand-new Heinemann series which offers a selection of the best-known works of African literature originally published in the African Writers Series. There are currently eight “Classic” titles from renowned African authors including Chinua Achebe, Bessie Head and Ngugi wa Thiong'o. Each title has an updated introduction and new cover.
