An Evening With A “Winner of Winners”

On Sunday, the 6th of December, I will be interviewing one of my favourite authors EVER, Ms. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’ve written that statement, and I know it’s happening but I still can’t believe it.

Ms. Adichie first won the Women’s prize for fiction (at the time it was known as the Orange prize), for her novel “Half of a yellow sun” in 2007. 13 years later, thousands of readers voted her the “Winner of Winners” from 25 years of the Women’s Prize for fiction winning books. I am deeply, unrepentantly biased when I say this but your girl is not surprised. I read her first book, “Purple Hibiscus” when I was 12 years old and have been an avid fan ever since. “Half of a Yellow Sun” was one of my first introductions to the Biafran War, as it is was not taught in schools, or remained a prominent part of the social consciousness of people outside of the South-Eastern part of Nigeria.

I am over the moon, and hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us. Get your tickets here and see you on Sunday!

    Read purple hibiscus at age 11..Half of the yellow sun was my first introduction to the Nigerian Civil war at age 16. I absolutely love her books. P.S it's sad that the civil war isn't taught in school, I remember calling my mum after reading HOTYS if the civil war was true and did it really happen, my next question was have the Igbos forgiven us?

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
