Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s desk diary will be published by Fourth Estate, the HarperCollins imprint. The book, titled We Should All Be Feminists: The Desk Diary, is an illustrated weekly planner and contains some of Adichie’s most powerful and inspiring quotes, as well as an exclusive introductory essay. The Bookseller reports that Fourth Estate publishing director Michelle Kane acquired UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, from Sarah Chalfant at The Wiley Agency.

Brittle Paper has previously featured some of Adichie’s significant quotes: here, here, and here. She recently shared her thoughts on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The book will “inspire the reader to be their own best self: to stand up and be truly heard.” It will be published in July 2020.
