On a night to remember, the hall was actually packed to the rafters for Chimamanda Adichie’s “AMERICANAH” book launch. Suffice it to say that sincerely you should go and get your own copy, or at the very least lend one to read. Only when one reads this new offering from Chimamanda Adichie will you understand the semi cryptic words of the late Chinua Achebe – “Adichie came almost fully made”; if you read the book you’ll understand why.
She succeeds in whisking you to a world of full bodied characters and spins words into moving images.
Americanah is not for your pretty book shelf, it belongs in your carry on at all times.
Here are some photos from the event.
