Kent Memorial Library’s “Books & Beyond” program is delighted to continue its series in May, with author Sejal Badani who will discuss her novel The Storyteller’s Secret on Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.
Sejal is a former attorney and an award-winning bestselling author of The Storyteller’s Secret and Trail of Broken Wings. Her novels have been published in over twenty languages and have been worldwide bestsellers.
The Storyteller’s Secret examines the patriarchal, colonial society of India in the 1930s and 1940s through Amisha, a young writer eager to secure freedom from her family duties. Two generations later, Jaya, Amisha’s granddaughter, struggles to cope with the grief of several miscarriages and the dissolution of her marriage. She travels to India in the hopes of rediscovering her family’s hidden history and there learns of her grandmother’s incredible story of forbidden, unconditional love.
The Storyteller’s Secret is a novel that transports you to another place and time. It tells the story of several generations of women as they cope with grief, lost love, and emotional isolation that they encounter in their families and marriages.
Copies of the book are available at Kent Memorial Library.
