CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE
Wednesday, June 5 at 7 PM
Don't miss a great evening with Nigeria-born Adichie, author of the impressive and award-winning debut, Half of a Yellow Sun. She will read from her equally compelling new novel, which follows the lives of Nigeria's postwar generation as they suffer endemic corruption and poverty under a military dictatorship.
An unflinching but compassionate observer, Adichie writes a vibrant tale about love, betrayal, and destiny; about racism; and about a society in which honesty is extinct and cynicism is the national philosophy. - Publishers Weekly
