Eno's Story a finalist for NLNG Prize

We are pleased to announce that Eno's Story by Ayodele Olofintuade is one of the three finalists for the Nigeria (NLNG) Prize for literature.

The Advisory Board for The prize approved the final shortlist on Tuesday afternoon, out of an initial shortlist of six books released last month. Joining Eno’s Story are: The Missing Clock by Mai Nasara and The Great Fall by Chinyere Obi-Obasi.

The eventual winner of the competition will be announced on 10th October 2011 at a world press conference at Eko Hotel, in Lagos.

We're sending out a big congratulations to Ayodele and keeping our fingers crossed!


  • I totally agree with you on that my ssietr. My daughter has gotten so used to being read to that she insists I read to her every night, else she will not sleep! As inconvenient as this can be sometimes, I always oblige her cause I know it will really help her. She started reading the Queen primer (remember queen primer?) before she was four. She’s four years and 2 months now and just yesterday she wrote a complete sentence on an exercise book and came to show me! I felt like I had been rewarded for all my efforts at reading to my daughter, even at inconvenient times.I urge all parents to try and read to and with their child any chance they get. It would really go a long way to helping them learn to read early.
