Arundhati Roy presents The Ministry of Utmost Happiness 

Wed, May 2 2018   7:30 pm

BPL Presents is proud to partner with Greenlight Books to host Arundhati Roy for the paperback launch of her bestselling and award-winning novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.

A dazzling, richly moving new novel by the internationally celebrated author of The God of Small Things. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent—from the cramped neighborhoods of Old Delhi and the roads of the new city to the mountains and valleys of Kashmir and beyond, where war is peace and peace is war.

It is an aching love story and a decisive remonstration, a story told in a whisper, in a shout, through unsentimental tears and sometimes with a bitter laugh. Each of its characters is indelibly, tenderly rendered. Its heroes are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, patched together by acts of love—and by hope.

Each $19 ticket includes admission to the event, as well as a paperback copy of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness; books are distributed at the event. Roy will sign books following the discussion.

This event is accessible for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
