Inspired Writers Series Hosted by MFA Program's Phil Klay: Megha Majumdar - "Politics and Power" - Thursday, November 18 at 7:30 PM

Date: 11-18-2021

Time: 07:30 PM

Free virtual event; Registration is required at https://events.fairfield.edu/events/inspired-writers-series-megha-majumdar-politics-and-power-168871319663

In her universally acclaimed A Burning, Megha Majumdar tells the story of the aftermath of a terrorist attack in modern India through the lives of three characters caught up in the subsequent political hysteria. In what the New Yorker’s James Wood declared an “immersive” and “masterly” narrative, Megha richly inhabits different voices and perspectives in a tale at once sophisticated about the workings of power, and deeply humanistic in its depictions of characters struggling at the margins. She will be in conversation with Fairfield’s MFA writing professor and author Phil Klay.
