Tropical Fish Reels in a Big One

I've posted before about my friend and fellow Bread Loafer Doreen Baingana, whose first book is suceeding nicely. Most recently, "an international judging panel, meeting in Kampala, Uganda has awarded the 2006 Commonwealth Writers' Prize... Best First Book Award, Africa Region to Doreen Baingana's Tropical Fish: Tales from Entebbe (University Of Massachusetts).

Doreen, who is still in Uganda, is now shortlisted for "the 20th Commonwealth Writers' Prize, the international award for outstanding fiction, which will be decided by a panel made up of the four regional Chairpersons in Melbourne and announced on 14 March 2006. They join other regional winners from Canada and the Caribbean; Eurasia; and South East Asia and the South Pacific."

Read the entire press release.
