“Reading Culture” Book Club
Writer Anand Giridharadas believes the enchantment of the “American Dream” has competition from an increasingly potent charm: the call of India. In India, crossing class and caste boundaries is becoming more common—due in part to globalization and the Internet—and whereas generations of Indians saw emigration to America as an opportunity to get ahead, a new generation is forging its way towards prosperity in its homeland. Giridharadas depicts this dynamic shift in his new book, India Calling. This book club stimulates a conversation about the connections between India today and India-themed UMS programming this season.
