Purple Hibiscus is a 2003 novel written by the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Fifteen-year-old Kambili and her older brother Jaja lead a privileged life in Enugu, Nigeria. They live in beautiful house, with a caring family, and attend an exclusive missionary school. They're completely shielded from the troubles of the world. Yet, as Kambili reveals in her tender-voiced account, things are less perfect than they appear.
The book will be available on the library reserve shelf ahead of the group discussion. No RSVP required -- all are welcome.
