Jhumpa Lahiri

Tuesday, January 30, 7:30 p.m.

Location: Temple Emanu-El, Olan Sanctuary

In 2000 Jhumpa Lahiri received the Pulitzer Prize for her debut story collection Interpreter of Maladies, and was later awarded the 2017 PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story. Her first novel, The Namesake, was a New York Times Notable Book and adapted as a film by director Mira Nair. The Clothing of Books (2017) is a short personal meditation on the art of the book jacket. To write In Other Words (2016), an autobiographical work that investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, Lahiri moved to Rome with her family seeking full immersion, for “a trial by fire, a sort of baptism” into a new language and world. The New York Times Book Review calls it “gorgeous . . . the most unusual of self-portraits.”
