AMERICANAH by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

October 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

featuring Lauren Jarvis, Assistant Professor of History


A National Book Critics Circle Award Winner and one of the New York Times Book Review’s Best Books of the Year

“[A] knockout of a novel about immigration, American dreams, the power of first love, and the shifting meanings of skin color. . . A marvel.”—NPR

“A cerebral and utterly transfixing epic. . . Americanah is superlative at making clear just how isolating it can be to live far away from home. . . Unforgettable.”—The Boston Globe

“Superb . . . Americanah is that rare thing in contemporary literary fiction: a lush, big-hearted love story that also happens to be a piercingly funny social critique.”—Vogue

“Witheringly trenchant and hugely empathetic . . . a novel that holds the discomfiting realities of our times fearlessly before us. . .  A steady-handed dissection of the universal human experience.”—The New York Times Book Review
