This isn’t an April Fool’s joke. On April 1, award-winning author and activist Arundhati Roy makes her first visit to Vancouver for an event you shouldn’t miss.

Arundhati Roy Event in Vancouver

Our friends at Indian Summer Festival are hosting an evening with celebrated author Arundhati Roy, who’s also made a name for herself as an outspoken cultural, environmental and political critic.

Arundhati Roy is a world-renowned Indian author and global justice activist. From her celebrated Booker-Prize winning novel The God of Small Things, to her prolific writing on topics ranging from climate change to war, the perils of free-market development, and the defense of the poor, Roy’s voice has become indispensable to millions seeking a better world.

On her first visit to Vancouver, Roy will read from a range of her works, and speak about her journey in writing and activism. Books will be available for purchase on-site, and there will be a book signing after her talk.
