Enter a world that is at once lush and fascinating, stark and cruel
PASO ROBLES, CA – February 24, 2022 Join the Library Book Group Zoom discussion of The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi on Thursday, March 17 6:00-7:00 pm.
Escaping from an abusive marriage, seventeen-year-old Lakshmi makes her way alone to the vibrant 1950s pink city of Jaipur. There she becomes the most highly-requested henna artist—and confidante—to the wealthy women of the upper class. But trusted with the secrets of the wealthy, she can never reveal her own.
“Rich in detail and bright with tastes and textures, The Henna Artist is a fabulous glimpse into Indian culture of the 1950s.”—Bookpage, Starred Review
