SALA Book Club - "Americanah"

This month we're reading the best selling novel Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

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 have no theme or topic for what we read. Attendees each nominate a book for next month, and the final selection is made by a poll on our SALA Facebook group.

We will meet to discuss a new book on the 1st Sunday of each month. The person who nominated the winning book hosts at their home or a public location (coffee shop etc.) of their choosing.

This month Aurora will be hosting in Sherman Oaks. The location is TBD and will be emailed out to those that RSVP.
