IGNITE! book club: David Chariandy in conversation with Ayesha S. Chaudhry
On June 30, Dr. David Chariandy, award-winning author of ‘Brother’, will be in conversation with Dr. Ayesha S. Chaudhry about her new book, ‘The Colour of God’. By revisiting a series of pivotal moments in her life, Dr. Chaudhry examines the colonial, racialized, and gendered beliefs and ideals with which she was raised. Braiding together Western, South Asian and Quranic storytelling styles, Chaudhry weaves her personal experiences with social commentary, and invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss. This final IGNITE! event of the year is not to be missed.
