Join writer and educator Gayatri Sethi for a virtual conversation with author Anjali Enjeti about her new book from Mango and Marigold Press.
Enjeti describes Sethi's Unbelonging as "[a] sweeping ode to her ancestors and the homelands intimately tied to her identity... a mesmerizing debut about truth and naming, colonization and kinship, and a poetic meditation on what it means to be human."
