The newest issue of Widener Magazine includes a story student Lindsay Pepino ’12 wrote about the talented authors who participate in the Widener Distinguished Writers Series.  If you enjoyed that article, you should be on campus at 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 27 when Anjali Joseph, author of the novel Saraswati Park, will give a reading in the Webb Room in University Center as part of the continuing series.

Born in Bombay, Joseph has written for The Times of India and been a commissioning editor for ELLE  in India.  Earlier this year she won the Desmond Elliott Prize, awarded annually to the best first novel. “Joseph’s portrayal of modern-day India was selected for its enchanting narrative and assured style,” said the prize’s web site.

The reading is free and open to the public.
