Launching things off, Amitava Kumar will present the keynote talk of the festival. Kumar's new novel Immigrant, Montana (2018) is a literary immigrant tale with a provocative modern edge one that fuses story and reportage, anecdote and annotation, picture and text. Other recent work includes Lunch with a Bigot (2015), and a New Yorker piece "Being an Indian in Trump's America" (2017).
"A beguiling meditation on memory and migration, sex and politics, ideas and art, and race and ambiguity." — Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer
