Seismic Salon: Alka Joshi

Seismic Salon: Alka Joshi
Thu Mar 4th 5:00pm – 6:30pm

18257842Litquake’s second season of Seismic Salons begins with the always fascinating Alka Joshi, whose debut novel The Henna Artist was chosen for Reese Witherspoon’s book club, and appears in paperback this April 6. Born in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India, she has lived in the U.S. since the age of nine. Alka has a BA from Stanford University and an MFA from California College of the Arts, and ran her own advertising and PR agency for 30 years. Currently, she is working both on a screen adaption of The Henna Artist, and a third novel. Join us as Alka entertains and informs about the rigors of writing a historical novel for many years (how much research did she have to do?) and finally seeing the labor pay off handsomely.

Buy Alka Joshi’s book at the Litquake Bookshop.

Seismic Salons are a series of fundraisers offering conversation time with A-list authors for 10 lucky participants. All proceeds benefit Litquake’s on-going programs.
