Suggested One Read: Americanah

All month Daniel Boone Regional Library is taking your nominations for One Read 2018 and highlighting some of the suggestions we’ve received so far.

Americanah book coverOne local reader has nominated “Americanah” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which is a contemporary novel about a young couple who dream of leaving Nigeria for America. The nominator writes: “This novel is smart, funny and relevant. It is an opportunity for most of us to see our culture through the eyes of someone new to our country. It explores the issues of race, gender and class with straight forward language and often laugh out loud humor.”
