Alka Joshi with Angie Coiro

July 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT


Fans of The Henna Artist, rejoice! Kepler’s favorite and bestselling author Alka Joshi returns this summer with the exciting second installment of the Jaipur trilogy, The Secret Keeper of Jaipur.

Once more we return to the dazzling Pink City, where a now twenty-year-old Malik enters a Palace internship at Lakshmi’s arrangement. In the lush halls of the upper-class, Malik retains all his skill for subterfuge and careful observation… and the wealthy of Jaipur have plenty of secrets. When a cinema-building project at the palace goes horribly awry, Malik has the sense that something more than architecture is at play. Can he carefully untangle the intrigue behind the cinema’s failed opening night? With a rich tapestry of characters, including the charming new Nimmi, Alka Joshi has created another spellbinding novel.

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur offers the perfect, absorbing summer read, replete with politics, romance, and an exquisite sense of the vivid Pink City. And for those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading Joshi’s work, now is also the ideal time to start. A talented local literary favorite, Joshi’s star is on a meteoric rise— with her 2020 bestselling debut, The Henna Artist, already in development for a television series.

Don’t miss this unique chance to ask Joshi your questions about the series, Jaipur, and her journey as an author. Joshi joins Kepler’s for a live webinar on July 21, in conversation with journalist-in-residence Angie Coiro.

Webinar space is limited, so register early! Please consider joining with a book to support programs like this one.
