Join fellow bibliophiles for lunch in the DMA’s Cook Boardroom as you enjoy thoughtful dialogue about Lauren Groff’s award-winning novel Fates and Furies. Library Journal “highly recommends” Groff’s complex depiction of marriage, creativity, and power, saying, “Like a classic tragedy, Groff’s novel offers high drama, hubris, and epic love, complete with Greek chorus–like asides. A singular and compelling literary read, populated with extraordinary characters.” Dr. Jaina Sanga, author, literary scholar, and Fellow of the Dallas Institute of Humanities, will facilitate the conversation and lead the group discussion.
Moderator Dr. Jaina Sanga is the author of three works of fiction: a novel titled Silk Fish Opium; a book of short stories, Train to Bombay; and a book of novellas, Tourist Season. She is also a literary scholar and has published a book on Salman Rushdie and edited two encyclopedias of South Asian literature. Sanga was born in Mumbai and has lived in Dallas for more than 20 years. She serves on the Board of the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and is also a Fellow of the Institute. She is currently working on her fourth book of fiction, a detective novel set in India.
