Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer has suggested that youths should stop operating social media for about two weeks or more to grow reading habit as it is the only way to counter the spree of book banning in the United States of America, USA.
The author of many books, Adichie made this suggestion when she was conferred the W.E.B Du Bois Medal from Harvard University on Thursday.
She said “The most meaningful thing for me as a writer is to know that I can create something that means something to other people. And so what moves me the most is to hear from people who have read me and who say, your work made me feel seen, your work made me think differently, your work made me feel that I was not alone.
“For the young people who are here, if you care about anything, please care about reading, reading is so important, reading is magical, books are magical. And I really think that one of the best ways to counter what seems to me to be a really ugly tsunami of book bannings going around in this country is to read. The only way that we can answer to censorship of books is to read books,” Adichie said.
Suggesting that young people gives up on social media for books, she stated , “And so for you young people, I just want to make a very small suggestion, how about you give up social media for you know, two weeks, three weeks, a month, and read, read, read.”
