Chinua Achebe’s ‘Things Fall Apart’: 60th Anniversary: A Global Celebration

2018 will mark the 60th anniversary of Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

To mark this milestone, the publishing giant, Penguin, has released a new edition of the classic novel with cover artwork by the distinguished Nigerian artist, Victor Ekpuk. 

Conferences, seminars, art exhibitions, and music festivals are being organized across the globe to celebrate the archetypal modern African novel in English; which now exists in 57 translations across the world, with 20 million copies sold.


Please watch out for further announcements and posters.

  1. Celebrating this epical literary work after the death of its author makes me remember Adebayo Williams' assertion that " the man does not die who lives forever on the side of history". Achebe exists in our midst even in death.
