Come by Books on Beechwood on Thursday evening to meet local author Bill Bhaneja as he signs copies of his new book Troubled Pilgrimage: Passage to Pakistan. He will be here to sign and chat from 6:00 to 7:30pm.
From the jacket:
“Troubled Pilgrimage: A Passage to Pakistan is about a journey by the author, a retired Canadian diplomat, who is visiting his ancestral land of Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan, the first visit since he was five. Bhaneja’s Hindu family had to leave their homeland following the Partition of the Indian subcontinent in August 1947.
The trans-cultural narrative deals with the universal theme of displacement and how it impacts mind and psyche of those involved. It is a thoughtful work about how our multiple identities shape and get played out in a globalized world. What makes some to leave their homelands while others to stay on despite fears and uncertainties of impending future?”
Snacks and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you all here!
