“His Father’s Disease: Stories” book launch – A conversation with Aruni Kashyap

Suchitra Vijayan in conversation with Aruni Kashyap

The Polis Project has moved our public programing online and will continue to curate lectures and conversations throughout the COVID lockdown. Consider joining our reading and discussion series on the writings of Audrey Lorde, or tune in for our weekly Dispatches Series that shines a spotlight on how various communities are coping with COVID and our online book salon that features authors, scholars and artists. We will be live streaming these conversations, on our Patreon Page.

Also, do consider supporting our work.

While there is much to despair, these moments also help us to think about radically remaking our world, and about new possibilities, even if it is only online for now.
