It will present internationally acclaimed authors and thinkers taking part in a range of panels and debates about ideas and issues that resonate with our times. THE PROGRAM: includes the launch of William Dalrymple’s latest book, The Anarchy (Bloomsbury Publishing), on the rise and significance of the East India Company; Manisha Koirala whose latest memoir recounts her battle with cancer; Margo Jefferson speaking on Caste, Color and Gender; Priyamvada Natarajan talking about her book Mapping the Heavens, with insights into the nature of our universe; Food, Memory and Culture featuring Adam Platt, contributing editor and restaurant critic for New York magazine and Columbia University's session These Lands We Call Home, where a panel of writers and thinkers examine the current age of immigrants and global movement, as more and more people claim a multiplicity of coexisting identities.
