Educators are invited to attend dinner and a book discussion on Behind the Beautiful Forevers, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Katherine Boo. Boo explores how Muslims, Hindus, and Christians sharing a slum in India's financial capital, Mumbai, have been dealing with the daily implications of global change, intensifying inequality, and repeated efforts to incite religious conflict. Shortlisted for numerous prizes, the book recently won the 2012 National Book Award for Nonfiction.
