Nigerian Author Chimamanda Adichie Wins 10th PEN Pinter Prize

The award-winning writer will receive the award at a ceremony at the British Library in October, where she will deliver an address. The judges praised Adichie for her "refusal to be deterred or detained by the categories of others", describing her as "sophisticated beyond measure in her understanding of gender, race and global inequality". The prize was established in 2009 by the charity English PEN, which defends freedom of expression and promotes literature, in memory of Nobel-Laureate playwright Harold Pinter.
