chimamanda-adichie-birthday

Wonder what Chimamanda Adichie did in celebration of her 38th birthday last week? A birthday bash? A get-away trip? Quiet family dinner?

Okay, we’ll leave you guys to stay guessing.

What we do know for a fact is that Twitter lit up to wish the successful novelist and expecting mother a happy birthday.

Everyone from Okay Africa to the New York Public Library, alongside a massive entourage of fans were on hand to join in the celebration of her big day.

Here is a selection of happy-birthday tweets to show you just how heartwarming the outpouring of love has been.

    You should check my blog. I dedicated a post to my Queen. For a moment I thought my name was going to come back. Seeing as I took the celebration personal. But Oh well!
