Siddhartha Deb, the author of The Beautiful and The Damned: A Portrait of the New India will be reading from, and discussing his work as this year’s Shiva and Ram Avtar Tiwari Memorial Lecture. There’s an excellent interview with Siddhartha Deb at NPR, and if you haven’t had the opportunity to read his work to date, it does an excellent job of discussing the project’s many merits: http://www.npr.org/2011/10/10/141213308/undercover-in-india-beautiful-and-damned
Siddhartha Deb has also graciously agreed to sign copies of his book afterward, which will be vended by the IU Bookstore.
The talk will be at :30pm, Thursday, February 23rd in the University Club, Indiana Memorial Union. We hope you find time to hear a unique and interesting voice in creating new impressions of India.
