Join us via YouTube for a free reading and conversation with writers Sayantani Dasgupta and Rajiv Mohabir. Dasgupta, the author of the short story collection Women Who Misbehave, and Mohabir, author of Antiman, a poetic memoir, use their own experiences and the experiences of their characters to approach questions of cultural heritage, sexuality, and identity. Both writers will share their work and engage in a conversation about using their work to redefine roles and boundaries typically put around women, immigrants, and other underrepresented groups.
