A storyteller since she was a child, novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has an extraordinary talent for finding touching human stories in hardship. In her bestseller Half of a Yellow Sun, she showed that people not only die in wars, but also live, love and dream during them. Her latest book, The Thing Around Your Neck, details the Nigerian-American immigrant experience. Just eight years after her first novel was published, Adichie’s books have been translated into more than 30 languages and are taught in schools around the world.

Chimamanda was one of the speakers at GRID11. To learn more about GRID, check out bonnier.com/grid
