Salman Rushdie

Thursday, September 5, 7:30 p.m.

Salman Rushdie in conversation with author Jaina Sanga

Internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie delivers Quichotte, a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age—a tour de force that is as much an homage to an immortal work of literature as it is to the quest for love and family. When Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman, falls impossibly in love with a television star, he sets off with his imaginary son Sancho on a picaresque quest across America to prove himself worthy of her hand. A Booker Prize winner, Rushdie was knighted in 2007 for services to literature. 


Open Studio

First Saturday, noon-4:00 p.m.

The studio is open and waiting for you! Drop in on the first Saturday of each month and enjoy free art making in the Art Studio for the entire family.
