Join us for a night with the award- winning poet as she discusses her themes of home, grieving, and kinship. As the world recovers from a global pandemic and the failure of modern government, these poems are incantations to our connections to the human family.
“Mukherjee’s latest poetry collection is a penetrating, intercontinental, and reflective sheaf of poems on aging, illness, faith, and family written in a keen diasporic music.”
— Maya Marshall, author of All the Blood Involved in Love
