Join us for a conversation with two acclaimed Himalayan authors: Manjushree Thapa and Tsering Wangmo Dhompa!
They will be discussing their recently published novels, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction, considering what it means to represent Nepal and Tibet in the English-language literary scene.

About the Speakers:

Tsering Wangmo Dhompa is the author of three collections of poetry: My rice tastes like the lake, In the Absent Everyday and Rules of the House (all from Apogee Press, Berkeley). My rice tastes like the lake was a finalist for the Northern California Independent Bookseller’s Book of the Year Award for 2012. Dhompa’s first non-fiction book, Coming Home to Tibet was published by Shambhala Publications in 2016. She teaches creative writing and is a PhD candidate in Literature at the University of California in Santa Cruz.

Manjushree Thapa is the author of three novels, a short story collection and three nonfiction books about her homeland, Nepal. She is also a literary translator, and her translation of Darjeeling author Indra Bahadur Rai’s novel There’s a Carnival Today was released in South Asia in October 2017. The Canadian edition of her latest novel, All of Us in Our Own Lives, will be out in 2018. She lives in Toronto.

This event is co-sponsored by the Himalaya Program, the Institute of Asian Research, the Centre for India and South Asia Research, the Department of Asian Studies, the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies, and the Faculty of Arts.
