The Namesake Book Cover

Join us for commentary and discussion of Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake, a novel that Director Mira Nair brought to the big screen in a brilliant celebration of family with ties on two continents.  Lahiri, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, explores identity and cultural assimilation as she unfolds a story of an immigrant family coming to grips with the traditions left behind in India and the new ways of living in America. 

The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and the Los Angeles Public Library are celebrating reading citywide in collaboration with the National Endowment of the Arts' The Big Read. 

Seating is limited, so please sign up for the Book Discussion and pick up a copy of The Namesake in the Literature Department – Central Library.
