Chimamanda Adiche Honoured By The Prestigious Yale University

Award winning Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie just keeps adding more feathers to her already overflowing cap. The popular author has just been honoured by the prestigious Yale University. She was conferred with the Doctors of Letter, Honoris Causa.

Adichie shared this great news via her instagram page today being Monday, June 10, 2019. She actually went ahead and spoke at the school as part of the 2019 class.

It is worthy to note that Adichie has been described in The Times Literary Supplement as “the most prominent” of a “procession of critically acclaimed young anglophone authors [who] is succeeding in attracting a new generation of readers to African literature”.

 She has written the novels Purple Hibiscus (2003), Half of a Yellow Sun(2006), and Americanah (2013), the short story collection The Thing Around Your Neck (2009), and the book-length essay We Should All Be Feminists (2014). Her most recent book, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, was published in March 2017.

From all of us here at naijazzy, we say a big congratulations to her.
