Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – whose TED Talk "The Danger of the Single Story" has been viewed by more than three million people – will speak at the UO's Ford Alumni Center on Monday, April 1.
The 7 p.m. talk, which is free and open to the public, is presented by the UO's Center on Diversity and Community.
The New Yorker has named Adichie one of its “20 Under 40” writers to read. Her latest novel, "Americanah," will be published by HarperCollins this spring.
Her novel "Half of a Yellow Sun" has helped inspire new, cross-generational communication in Nigeria about the Biafran war. And her book, "The Thing Around Your Neck," is a collection of stories about Nigerians coping with corruption and immigration.
