Join the BIG discussion!

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri introduces the Ganguli family, new arrivals from Calcutta, trying their best to become Americans in Massachusetts even as they pine for home. The name they bestow on their firstborn, Gogol, betrays all the conflicts of honoring tradition in a new world – conflicts that will haunt Gogol on his own winding path through divided loyalties, comic detours, and wrenching love affairs.
Professor of English Ann Murphy will provide context  and facilitate the discussion. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
