Anuradha D Rajurkar, author of American Betiya, in conversation with Lauren Fox - a virtual Boswell event
Join us for the launch of AMERICAN BETIYA, the debut novel of Milwaukee-area writer Anuradha D Rajurkar, Winner of SCBWI Wisconsin's Emerging Voices award, Rajurkar is an teacher by day and YA novelist by night.
Rani Kelkar, a young woman growing up in Evanston, Illinois, can say she's never lied to her parents in her life. Then she meets Oliver, whose tattoos, charisma, and passion for art, qualities that made him so attractive to Rani - make him her mother’s worst nightmare.
American Betiya takes an honest look at the ways cultures can clash in an interracial relationship. Braiding together themes of sexuality, artistic expression, and appropriation, she gives voice to a girl claiming ownership of her identity, one shattered stereotype at a time.
