The Ridgeland Public Library to Host a Zoom Speaker Presentation: “Fault Lines: Living in Two Cultures”

23 Nov 2020 9:36 AM | Anonymous

The Ridgeland Library invites Ms. Seetha Srinivasan, Director Emerita of the University Press of Mississippi, and Jackson resident to talk about becoming a part of the American mainstream while retaining one’s ethnic identity (in this case, Indian) and asks the following questions: Can it be done? To what extent? What are the challenges, frustrations, rewards? 


Please join us on Zoom on Dec. 7th at 12 pm (Noon) for this online presentation. Everyone will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation. Please email Peter Dean at pdean@mcls.ms to register to join the presentation. 


This presentation is made possible, in part, from an honorarium from the Mississippi Humanities Bureau. The Speaker’s Bureau features the state’s finest historians, writers, and storytellers talking about a variety of subjects related to Mississippi and beyond. The MHC selects speakers based on their credentials and the quality of their program and pays them an honorarium for presenting to nonprofit groups around the state. 


For more information about this event, call the Ridgeland Public Library at: 601-856-4536 or email Peter Dean at pdean@mcls.ms.
