Book Club: The Namesake
The Columbia Museum of Art has teamed up with Richland Library for a virtual book club. Mona Verma, a research and readers advisory professional at Richland Library, will lead a Zoom discussion on Pulitzer prizewinner Jhumpa Lahiri’s bestselling debut novel, The Namesake. The discussion will explore how the narrative exemplifies the diaspora experience for many NRIs (non-resident Indians) and how themes like globalization intersect with ideas raised by artists in the CMA’s exhibition, Visions from India. The event is free, but registration is required.
This program has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
