Jill Bialosky, Niloufar Talebi, moderated by Isheeta Ganguly

Three writers celebrate the life-saving power of words. Jill Bialosky’s memoir “Poetry Will Save Your Life” presents 51 favorite poems paired with personal accounts of the roles they’ve played in her life and society. Niloufar Talebi’s “Self-Portrait in Bloom” has been called a “brutally honest memoir of a life built by words, destroyed by words, rebuilt by words.” The conversation will be moderated by Isheeta Ganguly, Indian playwright and fusion singer who adapts Rabindranath Tagore’s poetry into music and theater; his work is considered so timeless and vital that he won the Nobel Prize in Literature. With the support of Women Lit members.
