Chimamamda Ngozi Adichie wins Writer of the year at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 2017.

Haper Bazaar celebrates inspirational people every year through their annual awards. Awards are given to women in different fields – writers to actresses, designers to models. 

These women share a heartfelt commitment and a profound sense of sisterhood – the values that the Bazaar team also holds dear.

Adichie’s award presented by Sarah Chalfant.

In the Portfolio for the 2017 Winners, this was written of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

The Nigerian novelist and feminist icon is now as influential in the realms of fashion and music as she is in literature, politics and women’s rights.

In August of this year, Adichie’s short story – HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT IT? was published in the August Issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

It was described by BRITTLE PAPER as being ALL LOVE, CLASS AND MULTICULTURALISM.

Excerpt:


The quirks that had first charmed me about Jonathan were suddenly scourges designed for my irritation. His sensitivity was weakness. What I thought his innocence was now self-indulgent naiveté. Nothing had happened. Jonathan had done nothing wrong, I had not met anyone else. It was merely that one morning I woke up and felt undone. I began to struggle to shrug off a terrifying sense of something wasted, a colossal waste, leaving a dull mourning for things gone forever.
