Event 20

Sonia Faleiro and William Dalrymple

Readings and Discussions

Virtual venue: The Bandstand
How do you capture the life of a sex worker on the page? Sonia Faleiro and William Dalrymple have both written about very different types of prostitution – Faleiro about the bar girls of Bombay and Dalrymple about the sacred devadasis or temple prostitutes of Karnataka. The writers will read from their work and discuss the differences between the two worlds.
