“A Mumbai slum offers rare insight into the lives and socioeconomic and political realities for some of the disadvantaged riding the coattails (or not) of India’s economic miracle in this deeply researched and brilliantly written account by New York writer and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Katherine Boo.  Divided into four parts, the narrative brings vividly to the page life as it is led today in Annawadi, a squalid and overcrowded migrant settlement of some 3.00 people squatting since 1991 on a half-acre of land owned by the Sahar International Airport.” (from the publisher)

The program is free and refreshments will be served.

The book is currently available at the Circulation Desk.

Hope to see you there!
