Hello book
lovers! In celebration of Women’s History Month, I would like to present to
you, Nigerian novelist, short story writer, and non-fiction writer, Chimamanda
Ngozi Adichie. She has published multiple works some of which are under the
name Amanda N. Adichie. Her first novel, Purple Hibiscus (2003) was shortlisted
for the Orange Prize for Fiction (2004) and it also received the Commonwealth Writers’
Prize for Best First Book (2005). Her second novel, Half of a Yellow Sun
(2006) was adapted into a film (2014) by the same name by Biyi Bandele. Her
third novel, Americanah was selected by The New York Times as one
of “The 10 Best Books of 2013.” Check out her quote about what people become when
they are shown as only one thing. #womenshistorymonth #Nigeriannovelist
