Khabaar - Treasure Valley Reads Book Discussion
Please join us for a book discussion on this year's book pick for Treasure Valley Reads: Madhushree Ghosh's Khabaar: An Immigrant Journey of Food, Memory, and Family. Khabaar is a food memoir and personal narrative that braids the global journeys of South Asian food through immigration, migration, and indenture. Focusing on chefs, home cooks, and food stall owners, the book questions what it means to belong and what does belonging in a new place look like in the foods carried over from the old country? These questions are integral to the author’s own immigrant journey to America as a daughter of Indian refugees; as a woman of color in science; as a woman who left an abusive marriage; and as a woman who keeps her parents’ memory alive through her Bengali food. - University of Iowa Press.
Treasure Valley Reads is a community-wide reading project that encourages everyone in the community to read an engaging story and come together at events to learn and experience something new, be creative, and share ideas about themes in the book. Several local libraries and literary arts organizations collaborate to bring a variety of programs and events to the Treasure Valley.
