Interviewer asks Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: ‘Are there bookshops in Nigeria?’


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.It was a hot issue during an interview given by the celebrated Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in France during a festival. She was asked if there were bookshops in Nigeria. Chimamanda answered the question. And the interview continued with other explosive issues. The social media exploded (well, it bit too much to say that, it happened in a small niche with Africa minded bookish people on social media). Here another article on this issue. And we read about Chimamanda’s favourite bookstore in Lagos, the former capital city of Nigeria.
