The Golden Son Library Adventure with NYT bestselling author Shilpi Gowda (Carlsbad, CA)

March 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PDT


Adventures by the Book is pleased to partner with the Carlsbad City Library for a Free Library Adventure with bestselling author, Shilpi Somaya Gowda.

Join us we delve into Shilpi’s latest novel, The Golden Son, an unforgettable story of family, responsibility, love, honor, tradition, and identity, in which two childhood friends—a young doctor and a newly married bride—must balance the expectations of their culture and their families with the desires of their own hearts.

As a child of immigrant parents, Shilpi has a deeply personal perspective of what it is like to be from a family whose choices were often rooted in the traditions of India. Drawing from personal experience and extensive research, Shilpi will enlighten the audience on how she was inspired to write this stunning novel. Shilpi’s research ranged from delving further into the Indian customs she had heard of but did not fully understand to visiting hospitals across the country to imagine the career of her main character. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet this incredible author and get your hands on a signed copy of The Golden Son.

This free Adventure includes a book discussion, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the author up close and personal.
