Join us for a reading and signing with Dipika Mukherjee (Shambala Junction), winner of the Virginia Prize for Fiction winner, Aurora Metro Books’ biennial prize to encourage and promote new writing by women. Mukherjee’s debut novel was long-listed for the Man Asian Literary Prize (2011) and republished as Ode to Broken Things (Repeater, 2016).
In conversation with Samantha Hoffman (author of What More Could You Wish For) and Lisa Wagner (executive director of the Guild Literary Complex), topics will range from women’s rights, women writers, international adoption, and the way these and many other ideas flow through the new novel Shambala Junction by Dipika Mukherjee.
