Virtual Books & Coffee: Author Barbara Demick Discusses "Eat the Buddha: Life and Death in a Tibetan Town"

September 16

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Virtual Event

On Wednesday, Sept. 16, Barbara Demick will discuss her new book, "Eat the Buddha: Life and Death in a Tibetan Town.” A National Book Award finalist for “Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea,” Demick’s latest book was recently featured on the cover of the New York Times Book Review (July 28) and in a New York Times list of “Ten New Books We Recommend This Week” (July 23), which described it as “the profile of a group of Tibetans with roots in Ngaba County, in the Chinese province of Sichuan, which bears the gory distinction of being the “undisputed world capital of self-immolations.” Parul Sehgal calls the book “masterly,” and says that it “covers an awe-inspiring breadth of history,” from the heyday of the Tibetan empire to the present day.” Bronxville’s Zahabia Brainch will moderate the discussion.
