    JLF New York :: Season of India

    Wednesday, September 18, 2019

    At the Asia Society
    725 Park Ave

    Teamwork Arts, producers of the iconic ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival, head across the Atlantic to present JLF New York. This year’s NY edition celebrates books, ideas, and dialogue. It will present internationally acclaimed authors and thinkers taking part in a range of panels and debates about ideas and issues that resonate with our times.

    THE PROGRAM: includes the launch of William Dalrymple’s latest book, The Anarchy; Manisha Koirala whose latest memoir recounts her battle with cancer; Margo Jefferson speaking on Caste, Color and Gender; Priyamvada Natarajan talking about her book Mapping the Heavens, with insights into the nature of our universe; Food, Memory and Culture featuring Adam Platt, contributing editor and restaurant critic for New York magazine and Columbia University’s session These Lands We Call Home, where a panel of writers and thinkers examine the current age of immigrants and global movement, as more and more people claim a multiplicity of coexisting identities. Musical performance by Utsav Lal and Alec Goldfarb.
