Mountain of Light, with Indu Sundaresan
Join us for a "sparkling" afternoon with best-selling author Indu Sundaresan, as she talks about her new book The Mountain of Light.
The author of five books including The Twentieth Wife and other masterful and richly-textured historical novels set in India. A globe-spanning, epic novel about the diamond worshippers who, over the centuries, risked their lives and kingdoms to possess the world's most awe-inspiring gem.
Her new book revolves around a 105-carat diamond that has changed hands across the globe since the 1200s. "On one level, Indu Sundaresan's novel... is a fascinating tale about a mythical jewel, filled with adventure and romance, that draws the reader in. But on a deeper level, it is a keen and heart-rending examination of the costs of colonialism." -Chitra Divakaruni, author of Oleander Girl
