WRITING MATTERS: Visiting Authors in Oak Park July 16, 2016
Arts Center of Oak Park / The Ernest Hemingway Museum
Oak Park, IL
Share this event:


Writing Matters is awfully proud to present Chitra Divakaruni, an award-winning and bestselling author, poet, activist and teacher of writing. Her work has been published in over 50 magazines, including the Atlantic Monthly and The New Yorker, and her writing has been included in over 50 anthologies, including The Best American Short Stories, the O.Henry Prize Stories and the Pushcart Prize Anthology.
Several of her works have been made into films and plays.
Born in Kolkata, India, she came to the United States for her graduate studies, receiving a Masters degree in English from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.
To earn money for her education, she held many odd jobs, including babysitting, selling merchandise in an Indian boutique, slicing bread in a bakery, and washing instruments in a science lab. At Berkeley, she lived in the International House and worked in the dining hall. She briefly lived in Illinois and Ohio, but has spent most of her life in Northern California, which she often writes about. She currently lives in Houston, Texas, which has begun to appear in her writing.
At this event, we will be serving Indian food and offering our usual awesome assortment of desserts, as well as wine.
As people who have come before know, this is far more than a typical author reading and signing. It's a real evening out, informative, inspirational, and so much fun!
As in all WRITING MATTERS events,proceeds from the $10 ticket charge will go toward charity. Please come!
