We start the new year with a bang. Our first evening of 2019 features Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, the brilliant Indian-origin writer based in the United States. This is her very first event in Bombay. She will be in conversation with Ashwin Sanghi, best-selling author of The Rozabal Line, Chanakya`s Chant and The Krishna Key.
Chitra`s new book is The Forest of Enchantments based on the Ramayana. It places Sita at the centre of the novel and is a powerful comment on duty, betrayal and honour. A moving meditation on love in its many forms, The Forest of Enchantments confirms Chitra as an unparalleled story teller.
Chitra Banerji Divakaruni`s best-selling novels include The Mistress of Spices and Sister of My Heart, both made into acclaimed English-language films.
Do come to G5A, Laxmi Mills Estate, Shakti Mills Lane, Near Famous Studio, Mahalaxmi. On Thurs, January 17 at 6.30 PM. Seating as usual, on a first come, first served basis, so do come early.
