Hey, feminists! Join Wild Iris in reading Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s new essay, We Should All Be Feminists, based on her 2012 TEDx Talk of the same name. Adichie is the author of tons of award-winning novels and short stories, and her new essay is also receiving high praise. At only 64 pages long, it should be a quick and engaging read!
“In this personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-admired TEDx talk of the same name—Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah, offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.”
Wild Iris will also be holding a store copy available for anyone to read on the premises during business hours.
Book discussion will be held March 4th, 2015 at Wild Iris from 6-7:30pm.
