Event description
Join poet and educator Gayatri Sethi in conversation with author Anjali Enjeti about her new poetry collection.

About this event

Where do those relegated to the margins find belonging?

In her luminous debut Unbelonging, Gayatri Sethi deftly interweaves verse, memoir, and a bold call to action as she recounts her experience searching for home in the diaspora.

Drawing upon her life story as a Tanzanian-born-Punjabi turned American educator and mother of biracial children, Sethi tells an intimate tale of stepping into her power while confronting misogyny, racism, and empire.

Spanning decades and continents–from Partition to the Black Lives Matter movement, South Africa to Atlanta–Unbelonging tells urgent truths, inspires critical self-reflection, and emboldens its readers to pursue radical forms of justice, compassion, and solidarity.

Gayatri Sethi is an educator, writer, and independent consultant based in Atlanta. Born in Tanzania and raised in Botswana, she is of South Asian Punjabi descent, multilingual, and polycultural. She reflects on these lifelong experiences of identity, immigration, and belonging in her debut book titled Unbelonging. She teaches and writes about social justice, global studies, and comparative education. When she is not homeschooling or recommending readings as Desi Book Aunty, she travels the globe with her students and family.

Anjali Enjeti is a former attorney and award-winning journalist based near Atlanta. She is the author of the essay collection Southbound: Essays on Identity, Inheritance, and Social Change, and the novel, The Parted Earth. Her writing about politics, social justice, and books has appeared in Harper’s BAZAAR, Mic, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Washington Post, Al Jazeera, The Nation, and elsewhere. She is the co-founder of They See Blue Georgia, an organization for South Asian Democrats, and teaches in the MFA program at Reinhardt University.
