Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, "Dear Ijeawele" (with Audie Cornish)
https://ift.tt/3gzhpLf The award-winning author of Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is also one of today's premier commentators on political and social issues. In addition to her bestselling We Should All Be Feminists, she has written on Michelle Obama for The New York Times' T Magazine and on post-election activism in The New Yorker. In October 2016, her Facebook post in response to a friend's inquiry about how to raise her daughter as a feminist went viral immediately. Now available in print, Dear Ijeawele is an incisive and witty list of fifteen ways to empower a young woman. Ranging from the choice of toys—why not a helicopter as well as a doll?—to makeup, clothes, and sexuality, Adichie's suggestions foster strength and independence by opening possibilities and shattering conventions. Adichie is in conversation with Audie Cornish, co-host of NPR's award-winning evening news magazine All Things Considered. Previously, Cornish served as host of Weekend Edition Sunday. Audie has been covering elections and politics for public radio since 2004 as a reporter for WBUR in Boston. She continued on to NPR’s 2008 elections team and later Congressional Correspondent covering Capitol Hill. She now splits her time on All Things Considered with appearances on the NPR podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, where she is a panelist considering all things books, movies and TV. Founded by Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade in 1984, Politics & Prose Bookstore is Washington, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore and cultural hub, a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.
