Field Trip To The Smithsonian And The Indian Embassy

This Saturday, November 5,  I'll be heading to the South Asian Literary and Theater Arts Festival at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History (1000 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004). My panel is from 2-3 p.m., but the entire day's program is free and open to the public, so if you're in the area please come and bring friends.

As for Saturday night, I'm busy because I received this thrilling invitation from my country of origin:
You are invited to kindly attend a reception with the participants of the South Asian Literary and Theater Arts Festival (SALTAF) on Saturday, November 5, at 6:30 pm at the Embassy of India.
Now here's the key question: sari or suit?


Yay, Mitali! I have fond memories of speaking at SALTAF. Sari or suit, make it fancy. People at the embassy reception were dressed to the nines. Have a blast.
