Jai Chakrabarti graced our virtual stage to launch his debut novel, A Play for the End of the World--an unforgettable love story set in early 1970's New York and rural India, a provocative exploration of the role of art in times of political upheaval, and a deeply moving reminder of the power of the past to shape the present. Chakrabarti, joined in conversation by Brigid Hughes of A Public Space (where he was previously a writing fellow!), discussed the entwining of place and personhood, how one moves and exists in the city versus in the country, and the differences between who we are in moments of turmoil and in moments of abundance.
