NHL Book Club: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
June 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The library is closed for renovation, but our book club continues this month with a discussion of works by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
A Nigerian writer of novels, short stories, and nonfiction, Adichie in 2008 was awarded a MacArthur Genius Grant. She is the author of the novels Purple Hibiscus and Half of a Yellow Sun; the story collection The Things Around Your Neck; and We Should All be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay, adapted from the much-admired TEDx talk of the same name. Her latest novel Americanah was named one of The New York Times Ten Best Books of the Year. Her newly released book Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions is a powerful statement about feminism today–written as a letter to a friend.
The Neilson Hays Library book club meets 10 am on the last Thursday of each month, in the mini-library in the garden cafe, if there is enough space, or at the British Club cafe next door.
