MacArthur Foundation Fellowship recipient and award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Adichie will join us for a powerful talk and conversation.

In all her work Adichie, who was named by The New Yorker as one of the 20 most important fiction writers under 40 years old, speaks to the cross-generational significance of storytelling and its enduring impact on the cultural history of our lives. Her newest novel, Americanah, will be published by Knopf in May 2013.

Be sure to join the live conversation during the lecture on UMD College of the Arts and Humanities' Twitter feed (@umd_arhu) with the hashtag #ARHUDLS.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Literary and Comparative Studies and the Institute for International Programs.
