This digital line art is of the amazing storyteller Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. From the days of her debut novel Purple Hibiscus, through her tales about a Half of a Yellow Sun and the Americanah that left us wondering about The Thing Around Your Neck, to when she convinced us that We—not only people like Zikora or those reading Notes on Grief—Should All Be Feminists, Chimamanda has been a Star & A Sun [from the East] lighting the path for many Nigerian writers, myself inclusive.
