An Indian Tea and Illustrated Book Talk with Sujata Massey, The Widows of Malabar Hill

Enoch Pratt

Sujata Massey's new novel is set in 1920s India. Perveen Mistry, Bombay's first female lawyer, is investigating a suspicious will on behalf of three Muslim widows living in full purdah when the case takes a turn toward the murderous. Inspired in part by the woman who made history as India's first female attorney, The Widows of Malabar Hill brings us an atmospheric new historical mystery with a captivating heroine.

Sujata Massey is the author of thirteen novels, two novellas, and numerous short stories. Her work is published in seventeen countries. Her novels have won the Agatha and Macavity awards and been finalists for the Edgar, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark prizes. Sujata writes a modern mystery series set in Japan starring the young female amateur sleuth Rei Shimura, and suspense and mystery fiction set in late British colonial India featuring different heroines. She holds a B.A. in the Writing Seminars from the Johns Hopkins University and was a features reporter for the Baltimore Evening Sun newspaper before becoming a full-time novelist.

Tea and Indian snacks will be served.
