A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: Friday, September 9 at 5:30 PM
Where: Optimism Brewing Company, 1158 Broadway
Seattle Feminist Book Club will be discussing We Should All Be Feminists, by Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. A book-length essay, which strives to create a definition of feminism for the 21st century. A few points about the book and Adichie:
• The book, described by many as a “manifesto,” was adapted from a Ted Talk by Adichie by the same name and should be a short read at only 50 pages.
• Part of Adichie’s Ted Talk was sampled in “Flawless” by Beyonce.
• Sweden has distributed a copy of the book to every 16-year-old student in the country.
• Adichie has also written a number of (very) critically acclaimed and award-winning books of fiction, including: Half of A Yellow Sun, Americanah, and The Thing Around Your Neck.
