The Nobel Peace Prize 2011

THIS CHILD WILL BE GREAT by Ellen Johnson SirleafThe Nobel Peace Prize 2011 was awarded jointly to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman “for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”

HarperCollins is proud to be the publisher of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President.

“The first thing to be said about Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s This Child Will Be Great is that it is exceptionally well written, a true story that seems as much a thriller as the remembrances of an ambitious and brave woman. . . . This timely book, essential for anyone who hopes to understand West Africa in general and Liberia in particular, is a lesson in courage and perseverance.”—Washington Post
