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.

Besides book discussions, what types of events would you like to see Chicago Reading Africa host?

Outings to events - discussions, exhibits, movies, performances, etc. that relate to the context of the books we read.

Are you a creative writer interested in critique groups or showcasing your work?

I used to write in the past, but haven't lately. Nice to have the option. I am definitely open to providing critique.

What days for book discussions work best for you?

I'm pretty flexible - week nights or weekends. I'm just not available on Tuesday nights.

Would you be interested in hosting a book discussion or do you have any suggested locations for our discussions?

Sure, once I'm fully settled.


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!
