Booked for Lunch with Author Madhuri Vija

Join us for a literary lunch with author, Madhuri Vijay as she presents her book: The Far Field. Vijay is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was an Iowa Arts Fellow and a recipient of the Henfield Prize. Vijay’s writing has received a Pushcart Prize, as well as a 30-Below Prize from Narrative Magazine, and has appeared in Best American Non-Required ReadingNarrative, and Salon, among other publications. Vijay was born in Bangalore. The Far Field is her first book.

About the Book: Gorgeously tactile and sweeping in historical and socio-political scope, Pushcart Prize-winner Madhuri Vijay’s The Far Field follows a complicated flaneuse across the Indian subcontinent as she reckons with her past, her desires, and the tumultuous present. “The Far Field is remarkable, a novel at once politically timely and morally timeless. Madhuri Vijay traces the fault lines of history, love, and obligation running through a fractured family and country. Few novels generate enough power to transform their characters, fewer still their readers. The Far Field does both.”–Anthony Marra, author of The Tzar of Love and Techno

Cost: $75 includes lunch and a copy of the book. Click here to learn more or email:
