VirtualMay 18, May 18, WednesdaySponsored by the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association Book Club The Henna Artist tells the story of Lakshmi, who escapes an arranged and abusive marriage in her rural village to the vibrant pink city of Jaipur in the 1950s. There she becomes the henna artist—and confidante—most in demand to the wealthy women of the upper class. Known for her original designs and sage advice, Lakshmi must tread carefully to avoid the jealous gossips who could ruin her reputation and her livelihood. As she pursues her dream of an independent life, she is startled one day when she is confronted by her husband, who has tracked her down with a high-spirited young girl in tow—a sister Lakshmi never knew she had. Suddenly the caution that she has carefully cultivated as protection is threatened. Vivid and compelling in its portrait of one woman’s struggle for fulfillment in a society pivoting between the traditional and the modern, The Henna Artist opens a door into a world that is at once lush and fascinating, stark and cruel. MEET THE AUTHOR Alka Joshi was born in India and raised in the U.S. since the age of nine. She has a BA from Stanford University and an MFA from California College of Arts. At age 62, Joshi published her debut novel, The Henna Artist, which immediately became a New York Times bestseller, a Reese Witherspoon Bookclub pick, was Longlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, has been translated into 26 languages, and is being developed into an episodic series by Netflix. The acclaimed sequel, The Secret Keeper of Jaipur, will be followed by the third book in the trilogy in 2023./event/author-talk-alka-joshi-author-henna-artist

VirtualMay 18, May 18, WednesdaySponsored by the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association Book Club Opal is a fiercely independent young woman pushing against the grain in her style and attitude, Afro-punk before that term existed. Coming of age in Detroit, she can’t imagine settling for a 9-to-5 job—despite her unusual looks, Opal believes she can be a star. So when the aspiring British singer/songwriter Neville Charles discovers her at a bar’s amateur night, she takes him up on his offer to make rock music together for the fledgling Rivington Records. In early seventies New York City, just as she’s finding her niche as part of a flamboyant and funky creative scene, a rival band signed to her label brandishes a Confederate flag at a promotional concert. Opal’s bold protest and the violence that ensues set off a chain of events that will not only change the lives of those she loves, but also be a deadly reminder that repercussions are always harsher for women, especially black women, who dare to speak their truth. MEET THE AUTHOR Dawnie Walton is a fiction writer and journalist whose work explores identity, place, and the influence of pop culture. She has won fellowships from MacDowell and the Tin House Summer Workshop, and earned her MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Previously she worked as an executive-level editor for magazine and multimedia brands including Essence, Entertainment Weekly, Getty Images, and LIFE. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, she lives with her husband in Brooklyn. /event/author-talk-dawnie-walton-final-revival-opal-and-nev

Odyssey May 17, May 17, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey May 17, 2022 Thursday, 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET Some 500 years ago occurred the remarkable culture clash between the Aztecs under their Emperor Montezuma and Spanish Conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés, along with vast numbers of Indigenous allies. New scholarship has given us a very different picture of these events and of the main actors than was common until very recently. Part I - The Aztec Empire The session begins with an overview of Aztec history and culture in the centuries immediately preceding the arrival of the Spanish, with a focus on the indigenous capital of Tenochtitlan. We will explore the origins and development of Aztec culture, focusing on the monuments and artifacts of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan and its central Templo Mayor. We will look through the lenses of archaeology, history, art, literature and comparative religion to arrive at an understanding of the dynamics of Aztec culture in the past, and its reverberations in the present day. Part II - The Spanish Entrada We then move on to consider the dynamics of what has traditionally been called the "Spanish Conquest," but which we now know involved a great deal of indigenous agency, and the emergence of colonial Mexico City on the ruins of the Aztec capital. We consider the existing Spanish presence in the Caribbean, the mission of Cortes, his progress across central Mexico, and the fateful meeting with the Aztec Emperor Montezuma. We trace the story of the Spanish entrance into Tenochtitlan, the house-arrest of Montezuma, and the Aztec/Mexica resistance that drove the Spanish out of the city, the famous Noche triste, followed by the subsequent victorious return of the Spanish a year later, and the overthrow of the Aztec Empire and the establishment of colonial Mexico City on the ruins of Tenochtitlan.
