Rachel Roy & Ava Dash: 96 Words for Love

01/17/2019 – 6:00pm
Fiction
Reading/Talk

Ever since her acceptance to UCLA, 17-year-old Raya Liston has been quietly freaking out. She feels simultaneously lost and trapped by a future already mapped out for her. Then her beloved grandmother dies, and Raya jumps at the chance to spend her last free summer at the ashram in India where her grandmother met and fell in love with her grandfather. Raya hopes to find her center and her true path. A modern retelling of the classic Indian legend of Shakuntala and Dushyanta, 96 Words for Love is a coming-of-age story about finding yourself in unexpected places.

Rachel Roy is the daughter of an Indian immigrant father and Dutch mother. Rachel is the founder and creative director of her eponymous brand and a tireless activist for using your voice to cultivate change in the world and to design the life you wish to live. Ava Dash is the daughter of fashion designer Rachel Roy. Ava works with young adults that have aged out of the foster care system as well as former sex trafficked girls in India. Inspired from her travels with her mother, Ava hopes to start a give back business that provides critical resources to educate and empower the girls she has met on her travels to India.
