Comedian Trevor Noah has won big at the South African Literary Awards. The talented comedian has been awarded the Youth Literature Award for his book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.
This is a milestone for the comedian, whose book is aimed at providing children with some insight into what it was like growing up in the apartheid era.
“What a privilege to spread the joy we experience when publishing our children’s books, with the judges, the booksellers and the readers throughout the country,” he said. Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime for younger readers is a remarkable book that radiates resilience and humour and is destined to become a classic work.
