Zim's 75 Best Books List
Zimbabwe International Book Fair (ZIBF)
July 01, 2004

The 75 Best Books Project Jury was in Inyanga from Thursday 24 June to Sunday 27 June carrying out what was a mammoth task. The Jury, under the Chairmanship of Prof. George Kahari, had to come up with a list of books which would make up Zimbabwe’s 75 Best Books; 25 fiction books from each of the three categories, namely English, Shona and Ndebele. The project, which is supported by the British Embassy in Zimbabwe and the British Council, is of a unique nature in that it is the first ever project of its kind not only in Zimbabwe but also in Africa. The awards for this project will be the highest ever given to Zimbabwean authors by a Zimbabwean organisation. So far, a list of nominees is available to the public. However, the actual books that have been selected will be announced on the Awards Gala to be held on the 5th of August.
