Alice in Harlem: Book Club Sundays

This weekend I had my first book club experience, thanks to my friend Anastazia! Every woman there was connected to me in some way: my alma mater, youth non-profits, and/or my current job. We spent the evening indulging in Anastazia's cooking, wine, and Chimimanda Adichie's "Americanah."

Anastazia threw down! We had burgers, orzo pasta, and plenty of toppings to go around. She also had a watermelon tart, for dessert. Homemakers for the win?

Chimamanda's book was a love story wrapped in notions on culture, race, religion, immigration, morality, marriage, and so much more. The debate, in the room, was heavy. We voiced our opinions and listened to related narratives, as the sun descended into the sky. 

It was an excellent read! I give it a 9 out of 10. Our next read is Boy, Snow, Bird and I can't wait!
