Chimamanda Adichie Makes Nigeria Proud, Wins 'One Book, One New York' Award In USA

Congratulation to celebrity novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. New York City residents picked her book "Americanah" as the winner of the “One Book, One New York" program - America's biggest book club. Program Description One Book, One New York is the largest community reading program in the country, bringing together book-loving New Yorkers to read the same book at the same time. The program was launched in February 2017 with quintessential New York flair, featuring five celebrities who each urged New Yorkers to vote for one of five award- winning books. Ultimately, the votes were tallied and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah was selected as the book all New Yorkers will read together. During the coming months, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment will present a series of free events throughout the five boroughs, with a culminating One Book, One New York event in early June. See below for a full list of upcoming events, and join in the conversation on social media using the hashtag #OneBookNY.
