Details Elizabeth Flock - "The Heart Is a Shifting Sea: Love and Marriage in Mumbai" Now a reporter for PBS NewsHour, Flock spent several years as a Mumbai-based features and investigative writer for Forbes India Magazine and her first book is a vivid profile of India’s largest metropolis as reflected in the lives of three middle-class couples. Writing with a depth and intimacy more often found in fiction, Flock chronicles an arranged marriage that evolves into true love, follows the struggles of a young professional couple to accommodate both partners’ ambitions and independence, and introduces an Islamic couple longing to have a child. Together, these three compelling narratives convey both the texture of daily lives in 21st-century Mumbai and illuminate the pressures on Indian society as technology and Western culture jars with tradition. This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
