Bakirathi Mani Kicks Off One Book, One Watertown

Next week will finally see the official start to the events for our community reading program, One Book, One Watertown.

Swarthmore College Professor, Bakirathi Mani, will visit the library to give an engaging lecture on The Namesake and Jhumpa Lahiri.

Bakirathi Mani is a professor at Swarthmore College, and the Chair of their Women’s Studies Department. She has Pd.D.s in Modern Thought and Literature and Cultural and Social Anthropology, and specializes in studying the South Asian diaspora in the United States. As such, she is a scholarly authority on Jhumpa Lahiri and her works.

Refreshments will be provided for guests by our own cafe.  No registration required.
