Happy Anniversary, BSWP!A Personal Recommendation
from BookShop West Portal

This Wednesday evening, July 1st, we are privileged to host MacArthur Fellow Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at our shop at 7 pm. This relatively young author has already captivated the literary world with two bestselling novels, Purple Hibiscus and Half of a Yellow Sun. Her new book, The Thing Around Your Neck, is a collection of stories which is getting excellent reviews. Adichie has already won several prestigious literary awards, and it seems it is only a matter of time before she wins the Booker Prize or a Pulitzer. Her writing is mature beyond her years (she is in her early thirties), filled with the wisdom of a much older storyteller, and shows the lyricism and power of a poet. She is a writer’s writer.

We urge you to come meet her this Wednesday evening. It will be a rare opportunity to meet a writer of her gifts in the intimate setting of BookShop West Portal.
