KitabKhana and Junoon invite you for Poetry reading by Arundhati Subramaniam.
She will host a session about ‘words as resource and refuge’ and ‘silence as pothole and possibility’.
Arundhathi Subramaniam is the author of four books of poetry, most recently When God is a Traveller (published by HarperCollins in India and Bloodaxe Books in the UK). Widely translated and anthologized, her new book is the Winter Choice of the Poetry Book Society, UK, shortlisted for the TS Eliot Poetry Prize.
Her prose works include the bestselling biography of a contemporary mystic, Sadhguru: More Than A Life (Penguin) and The Book of Buddha (Penguin).
As editor, her most recent book is Eating God: A Book of Bhakti Poetry (Penguin, 2014). Her other volumes as editor include Another Country (a Sahitya Akademi anthology on contemporary Indian poetry in English), Pilgrim’s India (a Penguin book on sacred journeys), and Confronting Love (a co-edited Penguin anthology of love poems). She has also been Editor of the India domain of the Poetry International Web since its inception, a project that has grown into a significant web archive of contemporary Indian poetry.
Arundhathi has worked over the years as arts journalist, curator and poetry editor. She has been the Head of Indian Dance and Head of Chauraha, an interactive arts forum at the National Centre for the Performing Arts. Active as a freelance writer on the performing arts and literature for over twenty-five years, she now divides her time between Bombay/ Mumbai and a yoga centre in Coimbatore.
