Alia Hogben


Ayesha S. Chaudhry will read from and engage in discussion about her recent book The Colour of God. Fusing grand historical narratives of colonialism and migration to the small, intimate heartbreaks of modern life, Ayesha S. Chaudhry examines the joys and sorrows of life in the wreckage of colonialism. In revisiting the beliefs and ideals she was raised with, Chaudhry invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss.
