Alice Walker was born in Georgia on 9th February 1944. She is a novelist, short story writer, poet and social activist. She rose to fame with her novel The Color Purple (a beautiful story, which I really should review!) in 1982 and went on to win the National Book Award for hardcover fiction and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
