Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at the 2017 CityLit Festival
Sat, April 29, 2017, 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM EDT
** FREE general admission tickets were reserved very quickly for this event. However, we now have 150 seats available in the auditorium at the University of Baltimore's Business Center, where a live-feed will be telecast. Attendees can then still be part of the CityLit Festival and join the booksigning immediately in the Business Center after Ms. Adichie's appearance. (This is also where all other CityLit Festival sessions are taking place.) Simply select the "Live Stream" ticket option.
Registration is required for the live-feed. (All seating is general admission... first come, first served! Doors open at noon.)
We have created a wait list, just in case other seating becomes available. (This has been created as a ticket option for the purposes of creating names, but it does not represent a guarantee of any seating at this time.)
Check www.CityLitProject.org for further details. Thank you.
Baltimore's CityLit Project welcomes MacArthur Genius Grant Recipient Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in conversation with WYPR's Tom Hall on Saturday, April 29 at 12:30 pm in the University of Baltimore's John and Frances Angelos Law Center.
(Adichie is the headliner of the 14th Annual CityLit Festival, a daylong celebration of literature held from 10 am to 4 pm. All other festival events will be held at UB's William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center, 11 West Mt. Royal Avenue.)
Adichie's latest book Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, was just published this March. Adichie’s 2012 TED Talk, We Should All Be Feminists, has started a worldwide conversation about feminism, and her 2010 TED Talk, The Danger of A Single Story, is now one of the top ten most-viewed TED Talks of all time with over five million views.
This event is FREE, but registration is recommended. Seating is limited.
