Shanthi Sekaran

This week we ask you to consider the places in your own life where you’ve experienced migrations—whether you’re an immigrant or your family has been in the same place for generations. We all experience migrations throughout our lives, in the form of life events, identities, and movements across time and place—and this week’s guest, Shanthi Sekaran, has much to say on this all-important topic and much more.


Shanthi Sekaran’s most recent novel, The Samosa Rebellion, was just released in September. She also wrote the adult novel, Lucky Boy, which was named an IndieNext Great Read and an NPR Best Book of 2017. When she’s not writing books, she writes for television, on the staff of the NBC medical drama, New Amsterdam. Shanthi lives in Berkeley with her family and a cat named Frog.
