11167992_912194755489653_3551564128158982256_nIn July, the Hearth Book Club is returning to the realm of literary fiction with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book Americanah.

“Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.”

We’ll be meeting at Diesel Cafe from 7:00-9:00 on Wednesday, July 29. This also happens to be Miranda‘s birthday, so we’ll take the book talk and go out for drinks afterwards!
