Reading Culture Book Club--The White Tiger, by Aravind Adiga
“Reading Culture” book clubs use literature to stimulate conversation about education, the arts, and UMS. In conjunction with the U-M India Theme Semester, this novel provides a vivid portrait of social order and socio-economics in the “new” India. The journey of the protagonist Balram takes him through dark villages and dark encounters—dusted with dark humor—and takes session participants on a guided exploration of where fiction meets reality in south Asia.
In collaboration with the Ann Arbor District Library.
