Spe­cial to the Whig

— Nige­ria has al­ways been a hub for award­win­ning writ­ers, such as the cel­e­brated works of “Things Fall Apart,” “Open City,” or “Amer­i­canah.” More re­cently, new work has been com­ing out of Nige­ria that is more ex­per­i­men­tal. Pick up one of these books to try some­thing new! Fur­ther de­scrip­tions for these books can be found on the Ce­cil County Pub­lic Li­brary web­site.
