Karan Mahajan reads at St. Edward's University
Karan Mahajan will be reading and answering questions in Carter Auditorium as part of our Marcia Kinsey Visiting Writers Series. There will be refreshments, and BookWoman will be selling books. This event is free and open to the public. Karan Mahajan grew up in New Delhi, India. His novel The Association of Small Bombs, released last March, was a finalist for the 2016 National Book Award and named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Time magazine, among others. Critic Sunil Sethi says Mahajan “maps the nature of terrorist violence--from the stirrings of disaffection to its deadly outburst and embittered aftermath--in a completely original way,” and Slate that he “has committed to a radical and extended act of empathy.” Mahajan’s first novel, Family Planning, won the Joseph Henry Jackson Award and was a finalist for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. He is also a graduate of UT's Michener Center for Writers.
