Description:

**THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.****

With much regret Katherine Boo has been forced to cancel her speaking engagements due to a slower than anticipated recovery from surgery.  We send her best wishes for a quick recovery and hope that the program might be rescheduled in the coming year.
 
 

In conversation with author Pico Iyer

A masterfully reported first book from a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist that agitates, informs, and inspires, or as Barbara Ehrenreich writes, "If Bollywood ever decides to do its own version of The Wire, this would be it." In a powerful indictment of economic inequality, Boo draws us into the lives of the garbage pickers and petty thieves in a Mumbai slum. Join us for a deeper look at this complex and beleaguered community-- hiding in plain sight.
