Sonali, an illustrator from Bangalore, has a job offer from an American
publisher and hopes her sunny, scripture-quoting lawyer can help her obtain
a visa. Meanwhile the bandit featured in a book she plans to draw isn't
a fantasy. He's based on an ivory poacher Sonali heard of as a child -
India's most wanted man. Cut off from his wife and daughter, the
fugitive kidnaps an equally legendary movie star whom he threatens to kill
unless granted amnesty.
reading will be followed by a Q&A and our traditional reception
with wine, soda, nuts, salsa/chips, candies, and our much-loved vegetarian
samosas. Plus our community corner featuring FREE magazines and
TONS of great information about other events happening around town.
