I’m delighted to be offering a free talk and Q&A about the Kural through the King County Library System in Washington State.
Here is the event description:
“In South India, the Kural is revered as a guide to practicing goodness and good sense in daily life. Yet this masterpiece of world literature, on par with the Tao Te Ching and the poetry of Rumi, has long lacked translations that make its wisdom available in English.
Recently returned from the Singapore Writers Festival, Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma reads from his new translation and speaks about his twenty-year journey to bring it to life. He hopes that you will come away feeling inspired, reconnected to your own sources of knowing, and reminded of truths that can help all of us navigate times of great change.”
