Women Authors Spotlight: Chimamanda Adichie

Americanah

 

If you haven’t noticed by now, March is Women’s Month. Yay! #Girlpower I’m highlighting a few of my favorite female authors over the remaining weeks. This week, I will begin with Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.

I first stumbled upon this incredible author (I may lose some writer credibility admitting this) in Beyonce’s song, “Flawless.” In the song, there is  an excerpt of Adichie’s speech, “Why Everyone Should be a Feminist.” The words moved me, so much so, that I looked her up. The first book I read was, “Half of a Yellow Sun,” a love story surrounding the short lived nation of Biafran. I watched the movie too. The next book, my current read, is “Americanah.” This woman has a way with words, and a unique way of storytelling that I absolutely love. Plus, I appreciate an author, who knows how to create realistically flawed characters. I heard there is a movie in the works for this one too, and I can’t wait! If you haven’t checked her out yet, I suggest beginning with “Americanah.”

Are you familiar with this amazing woman’s work? Any suggestions on my next read from her?

Living in the Moment,

International Women’s Day

 

Recently, last year to be exact, I heard about this holiday, which is surprising because it began in 1909. Incredibly, it is celebrated all over the world!

This past Saturday, I was blessed to see a vision that I’ve had for years come to fruition. The vision was to see  women of diverse nationalities at a tea party, enjoying one another’s company. I am so thankful to be a part of a multicultural church, who believed in that vision too.

Our speaker on Saturday, Karen Harmon, www.karenharmon360.com, shared with us some poignant aspect of being a woman, especially a Christian woman. One of the pieces I’d like to highlight is a prayer that women will begin to see each other as sisters and not as threats, that we won’t be so quick to judge another woman who is not like us, and that we will celebrate one another in all of differences and uniqueness.

I’m thankful for all the diverse women God has allowed me to meet at my church, in the community, and on the blogosphere.

Happy International Women’s day to all the beautiful women, who are unafraid to chase their dreams, no matter how big they are, and in spite of the many times she was told, it can’t be done!

-Your moment is now,

Ebby ♥
