Colson Whitehead & Arundhati Roy – A Reading 

Colson Whitehead and Arundhati Roy, two writers whose work has become powerfully embedded in our imagination over the past few decades, read from their recent work, followed by Q & A.  Whitehead, winner of the 2017 BoBi award, will read from his novel, The Nickel Boys, winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Roy, who since her 1997 Booker Prize-winning novel, The God of Small Things, has emerged as one of India’s fiercest and most prescient political essayists, will read from her new collection, Azadi: Freedom. Fascism. Fiction. Introduced by Anderson Tepper.
