Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is, of course, far from the first author to contribute to the BBC's Reith Lecture series.

The late Hilary Mantel, for example, spoke about bringing the dead back to life in art.

But the Guardian expects that Adichie might be the most debate-inspiring one to date.

Zoe Williams spoke with the author of Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah, after the lecture was recorded.

So between her sneak listen and conversation with the author, Williams is confident in saying that Adichie's reflections on freedom of speech and the future of literature will capture your attention — and possibly raise your blood pressure.

Read her interview with Adichie and an excerpt of the Reith Lecture, which will be released Wednesday, in the Guardian.
