Akhil SharmaAkhil Sharma '92, who was recently featured on the cover of PAW and was a panelist at We Flourish, will be in Los Angeles as part of the Hammer Museum's Hammer Readings series. Akhil Sharma’s second novel, Family Life, launches in Delhi, the city of his birth, and unfolds in New York, the PEN/Hemingway Award winner’s chosen home. It was 13 years in the writing, and Sharma’s lengthy process resulted in a tight novel that is “a terse, devastating account of growing up as a brilliant outsider in American culture,” observes the novelist Edmund White, and is “heart-stopping,” according to Sonali Deraniyagala, writing in the New York Times Book Review.

Complimentary coffee and tea served. A book signing will follow the reading.

Attendees are encouraged to wear a bit of orange to spot other alumni!
