#OneBookNY Events in Your Neighborhood

The city's first One Book, One New York reading program is bringing book-lovers together to read the same novel at the same time: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. To celebrate throughout the summer, The New York Public Library will host a variety of events throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. 

Copies of Americanah are available for purchase from The New York Public Library Shop here.
