Join the We Too Sing America book tour, and contact Deepa to set up a workshop, reading, or discussion on your campus and community.
In 2017, We Too Sing America will be out in paperback with a new foreword that speaks to resistance in the wake of the election of Donald Trump. Please contact me if you’d like me to speak on your college campus, library or city.
I’m launching the WTSA 20 Book Clubs in 2017 project – I’m asking you to include WTSA as part of your book club selection this year. I’ll send you resources and discussion questions and feature your book club on the WTSA Facebook page. And, if you like, I’m happy to Skype into your book club discussion to answer questions or provide remarks. To be part of the WTSA 20 Book Clubs in 2017 project, please contact me.
