What was the last book, essay, or short story you read from an African author?

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Adichie - loved everything I've read by her.

We read Contemporary African Literature (published between the mid-20th Century and present-day). Does this interest you?

How much time are you willing and able to commit to reading (e.g., one book every other month, three short stories per month, etc.)? Be as realistic and specific as you can.

We have members that live all over Chicago and we have built relationships with organizations in a diversity of neighborhoods as well. Are you willing to commute to participate in our discussions and events?

Hey good people, I'm book lover and new to Chicago. I love to discuss great literature and have been looking for a book club for a while. This one sounds exciting. Looking forward to the meeting you all!
