Event Details

Annapurna Potluri, author of The Grammarian, and Amana Fontanella-Khan, author of Pink Sari Revolution, join us for a reading and conversation about women's lives and political power in a fictional India of this time last century and a contemporary India that is grappling with its national response to sexual violence.

Pink Sari Revolution, "a fast-paced, powerful, and sympathetic portrait of a victim and her subaltern champion" [New York Journal of Books] takes up the timely story of Sampat Pal and the Gulabi Gang, an all-woman grassroots vigilante organization, made up of women not of the privileged class, that exacts justice from corrupt police officers and abusive husbands and runs vocational centers for women. In The Grammarian, “written in supple, sensuous prose that aches with memory and regret” [Shelf Awareness] a woman enters the currents of political activism after an innocent, one-sided love leads her family to cast her out.

Join us as we trace the thread connecting two stories one hundred years apart, of Indian women who seize hope when it isn't freely given. The conversation will be moderated by journalist Vikas Bajaj.
