Rutgers University Alumni Book Club: The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi

Share This:

Now is a great time to join the Rutgers University Alumni Book Club, a free program for members of the Rutgers community. We are now more than 1,880 readers strong! The book club can help you continue your journey of lifelong learning through reading both entertaining and informative titles and encountering authors you might not ordinarily read.

We will begin reading The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi in March. You can find the book online, at a bookstore, or at your local library.

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.

Join now, obtain a copy of the book (or audiobook), and jump in on the discussion with other alumni.
