With the commitment to bring diverse voices and a variety of stories from local and visiting authors, the series will include both published and unpublished works from writers well known, unknown, and all the places in between.
This month we welcome Niti Sampat-Patel to the Museum. She will be discussing her new book, "Moon Goddess"
Moon Goddess is an epic novel that spans India, USA and Lebanon. Echoing the structure of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land it chronicles the lives of several generations of women and examines the nature of memory and violence as characters attempt to reconstruct the past. This complex and spell binding saga with intertwining stories of love, loss and subterfuge with both disruptive and healing characteristics; uses myth, quotations, prophecy, fact, and fiction to tell a compelling tale of fate and chance, personal choice and public intrigue. Moon Goddess will enrich the quality of the cultural lives of multiple international communities through Ms. Sampat Patel’s knowledge, imagination and writing process where she draws upon stories from diverse and heterogeneous sources and origins from the past and the present to reflect on each other.
