Tenement Talk of the Day: Chiamanda Adiche

In June we were thrilled to welcome the award-winning Nigerian author of  Purple Hibiscus, Chimamanda Adichie, to Tenement Talks. Ms. Adichie read from her latest book, The Thing Around Your Neck, a collection of short stories targeting the complexities of immigration in the 21st century. We are pleased to be able to bring you  the recording of this event in this blog post.

In the following lively discussion with Tayari Jones, Adichie discusses her experiences upon moving to the United States, and about the concept of home.

Interested to know more?
