Although I had lived in Nigeria for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I was not introduced to his work until I entered a graduate program at Ohio University. Later I introduced several of his works at Penn State Harrisburg along with other African novelists. I was fortunate to attend one of Professor Achebe's lectures at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. His works had a profound impact on my understanding of Nigeria and its people.

I went to high school in Nigeria and it was customary to read Chinua Achebe's literatures. I was amazed to see that my daughters also read his "Things Fall Apart" here in Gastonia NC high schools. He has surely touched us all with his intellectual prowess. May he rest in peace.

The Family,
I was introduced to the novels of Chinua Achebe in the 1970's. At that time, my cultural anthropology class at
Barber-Scotia College in North Carolina read three of his novels. I will always be in debt to
Mr. Achebe for providing my class and me with such an enriching and rewarding experience
Rest in Peace.

A literary giant, a master story teller, a reservoir of traditions and culture, your name will forever live on because you gave so much to the African continent and the world at large. May your family find comfort in these facts.

My Daughter and I are sorry for the passing of your husband. We meet at the University of Connecticut during the 70's where Fatima wrote an article while a student in the college paper. I was in charge of faculty housing and was helpful in locating housing for the family on campus.
