Litquake’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.
Thank you to Alka for donating her time for this Litquake fundraiser.
