Join SAWCC this Sunday for a mellow afternoon celebrating Pride and community with author SJ Sindu, alongside croissants, coffee, and cava! Weâ€™ll be serving brunch-y bites and drinks for an intimate, salon-style reading and discussion on her debut novel, Marriage of a Thousand Lies (Soho Press 2017).
Read an excerpt of Sindu’s novel at theÂ Aerogram.Â A necessary and exciting addition to both the Sri Lankan American and LGBTQ canons,Â Marriage of a Thousand LiesÂ offers a vivid exploration of a life lived at a complex intersection of race, sexuality, and nationality.
SJ SinduÂ was born in Sri Lanka and raised in Massachusetts. Her hybrid fiction and nonfiction chapbook,Â I Once Met You But You Were Dead, won the 2016 Turnbuckle Chapbook Contest and was published by Split Lip Press. She was a 2013 Lambda Literary Fellow and holds a PhD in Creative Writing from Florida State University.Â Marriage of a Thousand LiesÂ is her first novel, released by Soho Press in June 2017.
