Major African library heads home

Charles Davis writes "Here's News That one of the world's top collections of African literature is finally on its way back to Africa,
officials said today.
Rare first editions signed by giants of African literature such as Nigeria's Chinua Achebe
and Wole Soyinka and South Africa's Nadine Gordimer form part of the collection of 13 000
items being sent from Texas to South Africa to launch a new Centre for African Literary
Studies at the University of Natal.
"This collection constitutes a key intellectual and cultural resource which can be seen as a
cornerstone for scholarly contribution and African renaissance," Liz Gunner a Professor at
the University of Natal said."
