Book to be discussed: The Henna Artist by Alaka Joshi. 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. “The determination of women to transform their lives and make something of their gifts is a theme that underscores Joshi’s novel.” (Historical Novel Society)
Discussion leader: Amy Curran Baker (author of Now What? A Guide to Recovery After Mastectomy) and Fran Contino.
