If you or your book club are reading Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken, please stop by any of the Whole Foods stores listed below (see dates and times) and join us for an evening of discussion, good food and inspiration!
Here is the official information:
Whole Foods Market is excited to be hosting several “book club” evenings with author Monica Bhide. Please join us as we welcome Monica for great food and conversation as we discuss her newest novelKarma and the Art of Butter Chicken, A novel that transcends culture in a captivating tale of loss, love and food.
Named by the Chicago Tribune as one of seven food writers to watch, her food writing has appeared in Food & Wine, Bon Appétit, Saveur, The Washington Post, Health, The New York Times, Ladies Home Journal, and many other well-known publications. She is a frequent presence on NPR and a presenter for organizations that include Georgetown University, the Association of Food Journalists (AFJ), London Food Blogger Connect, and the Smithsonian.
Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken has been described as “Slumdog Millionaire meets The Hundred-Foot Journey”. The novel tells the story of Eshaan, a traumatized young man raised by Buddhist monks, as he tries to right the wrongs of his past by embarking on a challenging quest. Ms. Bhide dishes up a page-turning story of sacrifice and determination while exploring the human spirit. Set in contemporary India and seasoned with gentle love, dramatic loss, enchanting verse, and exotic food, Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken escorts readers to a place where past and present keep uneasy yet delicious company.
