SOLD OUT: Politics & Prose and Sixth & I Present CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE
The award-winning author of AMERICANAH, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is also one of today's premier commentators on political and social issues.  In addition to her bestselling WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS, she has written on Michelle Obama for The New York Times's T Magazine and on post-election activism in The New Yorker. In October 2016, her Facebook post in response to a friend's inquiry about how to raise her daughter as a feminist went viral immediately. Now available in print, DEAR IJEAWELE is an incisive and witty list of fifteen ways to empower a young woman. Ranging from the choice of toys - why not a helicopter as well as a doll? - to makeup, clothes, and sexuality, Adichie's suggestions foster strength and independence by opening possibilities and shattering conventions.

Adichie will be in conversation with Audie Cornish, co-host of NPR's award-winning evening news magazine All Things Considered.
