Google is celebrating one of the greatest storytellers, Florence Onyebuchi “Buchi” Emecheta by changing its logo to a doodle, or illustration, portraying her.

Many say that Buchi Emecheta is to date the most important female African writer. She is certainly Nigeria’s best known woman writer, and is respected for her imaginative and documentary writing about African women’s experiences in Africa and in Great Britain.

Her themes of child slavery, motherhood, female independence and freedom through education gained recognition from critics and honours.
