1. Like many this morning, we are just learning of the death of Nigerian novelist Chinua Achebe. His first reading at 92Y was on Martin Luther King Day in 1994 and you can listen to the audio here.

    The video above is the full event from 2009 where he reads and speaks with philosopher K. Anthony Appiah about his experience growing up in Nigeria, Nigerian literature, education and cultural politics.
