[ONE NIGHT ONLY] The Nigerian-born Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wrote Half of a Yellow Sun—a gorgeous and affecting novel about the Biafran war—several years before she received a MacArthur Fellowship (the so-called “Genius Grant”), won widespread accolades for Americanah, or delivered a TED Talk that was subsequently sampled by Beyoncé. The film adaptation, despite the star power of Thandie Newton and 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejiofor, has earned pretty tepid reviews.
