It’s an honor to introduce this facilitator, our special guest:

Margaret Busby is an eminent editor and Chair of Judges, Booker Prize 2020. She was born in Ghana and educated in the UK. She became the first black woman publisher – and, at the time, the youngest publisher – in Britain when she co-founded Allison and Busby in 1967.

In 1992, Margaret compiled the pioneering anthology Daughters of Africa, which brought together writing by more than 200 women of African descent. Her follow-up, New Daughters of Africa, added another 200 writers and was published to great acclaim last year.

In the late 1980s Margaret rented her flat in Notting Hill to the young Ben Okri, who wrote his first novel there; The Famished Road went on the win The Booker Prize in 1991.
