About The Event

Artist Nidhi Chanani's debut graphic novel Pashmina will be released by First Second Books in October 2017. Pashmina tells the story of Priyanka Das, an Indian-American teenage girl. Born in Calcutta and raised in suburban southern California, Chanani's own experiences inspired Priyanka's story. 

This lecture is presented for the Baker-Nord Humanities Festival, a collaborative event celebrating the great cultural institutions of the city of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio dedicated to humanistic inquiry. The 2017 Cleveland Humanities Festival will explore from a humanistic perspective the impact of immigration across time and within our own time through a series of coordinated events, including lectures, exhibits, theatrical performances, academic symposia, tours, and films.
