Madam Florence's image is on google front page for today.
Florence Nwanzuruahu Nkiru Nwapa born on the 3 January 1931, died on 16 October 1993.


She was a Nigerian author best known as Flora Nwapa, who has been called the mother of modern African literature. The forerunner to a generation of African women writers, she is acknowledged as the first African woman novelist to be published in the English language in Britain and achieve international recognition, with her first novel Efuru being published in 1966 by Heinemann Educational Books.

While never considering herself a feminist, she is best known for recreating life and traditions from an Igbo woman's viewpoint.

Nwapa also is known for her governmental work in reconstruction after the Biafran War. In particular she worked with orphans and refugees who were displaced during the war. Further she worked as a publisher of African literature and promoted women in African society.

She was one of the first African women publishers when she founded Tana Press in the 1970s.
