Lake Oswego Reads Author Presentation

Thursday, April 25, 2024 - 7:00pm

Join us for an engaging evening with our featured LO Reads 2024 author, Thrity Umrigrar! Thanks to the Friends of Lake Oswego Public Library, Ms. Umrigar will be with us for an in-person presentation on April 25, to discuss her book Honor and to answer questions from the Lake Oswego community.  In this tender and evocative novel about love, hope, familial devotion, betrayal, and sacrifice, Umrigar shows us two courageous women trying to navigate how to be true to their homelands and themselves at the same time.  Remember to bring your copy of Honor if you would like it autographed by the author.

Ms. Umrigar will be joined in conversation by Oregon author, Sindya Bhanoo. Ms. Bhanoo is the author of the acclaimed collection of short stories, Seeking Fortune Elsewhere. You may hear excerpts of the stories and meet Ms. Bhanoo at her presentation on Tuesday, April 16 at 5:30pm.
