For the month of February, the HSL Book Group will discuss Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
In this 2013 bestselling novel, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love as teens but part ways upon leaving Nigeria. Offering a keen examination of race, class, and the immigrant experience in the U.S., U.K., and Nigeria, Americanah received the National Book Critics Circle Award and was shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.
The HSL Book Group meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Language, Literature, and History Section. New members are always welcome. No registration necessary. Inquiries about the Hawaii State Library Book Group can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or (808) 586-3499.
