A Plus Book Club

This September, Join the A Plus Book Club As We Read 'No One Can Pronounce My Name'

*in Oprah voice* And you get a book! And you get a book! And you get a book!

This month, the A Plus Book Club travels from our New York offices to the suburbs of Cleveland — figuratively speaking, of course. We're reading No One Can Pronounce My Name, the second novel by Lambda Literary Award-winning author Rakesh Satyal


His book immerses readers in a community of Indian Americans living in the Midwest and trying to navigate the divide between Eastern and Western cultures. Harit and Ranjana, two Indian immigrants in their mid 40s, strike up a surprising, strange, yet all the more necessary friendship as they search for meaning in their lives. 

Emily and I will discuss the book with Rakesh Satyal in our next Facebook Live interview at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 22. And, hey, we might even receive a free pronunciation lesson in the process. Chances are, we'll probably need it — especially after a glass (or two) of wine. 

All kidding aside, we're so excited to speak with Satyal about his latest work, and we're sure you are, too! But while you wait, sit back, relax and, of course, read, read, read!
