An evening with Amit Chaudhuri at the American Library in Paris
April 30th | 7:30 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
Amit Chaudhuri will discuss his latest novel, Friend of My Youth, a work that addresses friendship, displacement, and the limitations of memory and the written word to capture and communicate lived experience. Set in Mumbai, the book explores the narrator’s visit to the landscape of his youth and details encounters–both personal and historical–that play out in that city, at once familiar and alien to him in the wake of the 2008 terror attacks.
Friend of My Youth will be available for purchase after the event, thanks to The Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore.
Evenings with Authors and other weeknight programs at the American Library are free and open to the public (except as noted) thanks to support from the Annenberg Foundation. There is a suggested donation of ten euros for non-members. Doors open at 19h00.
The American Library in Paris is located at 10 Rue du Général Camou, 75007.
