Bilbliophilia - Chapter One: Foreign with Sonora Jha - A co-production with Jekeva Phillips and Word Lit Zine
This Bibliophilia fan favorite brings literature to lifeliterally. Local author Sonora Jha, will be reading the first chapter from her critically acclaimed debut novel, Foreign (Random House India). After the reading, the Bibliophilia Players, our group of improvisational actors, will act out that chapter for a full page-to-stage experience.

ABOUT FOREIGN: In a village in India, a forsaken man is about to kill himself in quiet despair. A million miles away, Katya Misra is celebrating a perfect evening in her fine, academic life in Seattle . . . until she is informed that her teen aged son Kabir has run away to India in search of a father he has never met. Contemptuous of her homeland and determined to bring Kabir back where he belongs, Katya must follow her son into the home of a suicidal farmer, in a village where, every eight hours, a man kills himself.
Whipped up in a world of violent protest rallies, mass weddings, inglorious suicides, and a love that demands to be rekindled, Katya must learn whose life can be saved and whose she should just let go.

ABOUT SONORA: was born in India, where she had a successful career as a journalist in Mumbai and Bangalore before moving to Singapore and then the United States to earn a Ph.D. in Political Communication. She is now a professor of journalism at Seattle University. Her first novel, Foreign, brought together her work as a journalist, an academic, and a creative writer. She is the 2016-18 Writer in Residence at the Richard Hugo House and is an alumna and Board President for Hedgebrook Writers' Retreat. She has just completed a memoir and is working on a second novel. Sonora lives in Seattle.
