Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - Americanah

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Childhood sweethearts in Lagos, Ifemelu and Obinze envision a life for themselves free of Nigeria’s military dictatorship. Ifemelu goes to study in America, but Obinze is denied entrance after 9/11. As their paths diverge for many years, Adichie, a MacArthur “Genius” and winner of the Orange Prize for Half of a Yellow Sun, depicts the changing times of multi-ethnic London, racist America, and a democratic Nigeria.
