Seasonal Special Happenings

Mumbai or Bust

When: Tue., May 13 2014

The Writers Center Stage Series is the Cuyahoga County Public Library’s main fundraiser that brings renowned contemporary literary figures to the Ohio Theatre to present their work. Tonight, you can hear award-winning author Katherine Boo speak about her book Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity. Boo is known for writing about impoverished and mistreated people, and in this non-fiction work she describes an Indian slum and the people who live there. In 2003, the writer won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for her series about the abuse of intellectually disabled people in group homes. Tickets are $30 and the talk starts at 7:30 followed by Q&A and book signing. (Gonzalez)
