Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the winner of the PEN Pinter Prize 2018. She will receive the award at a public ceremony at the British Library on the evening of October 9, where she will deliver an address. During the event, Adichie will announce her co-winner, the International Writer of Courage 2018, selected from a shortlist of international cases supported by English PEN. The recipient will be an international writer who is active in defense of freedom of expression. The PEN Pinter Prize 2017 was awarded to poet Michael Longley, who shared the prize with Iranian poet Mahvash Sabet.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the prize, in addition to the annual pamphlet containing this year's lecture, Faber & Faber, with the support of the Pinter Estate, will be privately printing a limited edition anthology of the ten PEN Pinter Prize lectures. Both will be available to the audience at the event.
