Book Discussion: Mindy Kaling's Why Not Me?

Saturday, November 3

Art Parkway District

Over the last ten years, South Asian women have become increasingly present in the cultural dialogue surrounding identity and dislocation, and increasingly visible in popular culture. Built on the popular book club tradition of socializing around literature, this program uses Mindy Kaling’s 2015 book as a point of entry to the exhibition Rina Banerjee: Make Me A Summary of the World,  where the artist explores similar themes of feminism, intersectionality, and the experience of being “other.” Read the book before you come, enjoy a light afternoon tea, and dive into lively discussion with other bookworms, artists and PAFA’s own Chelsey Everest.
