2017 - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Award: Author of the Year
Award Year: 2017
Award Presented: Chicago, Illinois
Author Details: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Book Title: Americanah
Book Award: Americanah
Award Description: "One definition of saga is: a form of the novel in which the members or generations of a family or social group are chronicled in a long and leisurely narrative. Americanah fits this definition, at its heart an epic love story and also an engaging narrative that touches on many themes (family, immigration, acclimation/assimilation, personal compromise, coming of age, the power of language, colorist, racism, female subjugation, faith, religious hypocrisy, xenophobia). We love reading a positive representation of black love".    --- Alabama 1 chapter.
