Shilpi Somaya Gowda, "The Golden Son," with Sarah Creech

NOTE THE TIME: March 5 at 4:00PM


New York Times bestselling author Shilpi Somaya Gowda (Secret Daughter) joins Sharon Creech (Season of the Dragonflies) to discuss her new book, The Golden Son, an unforgettable story in which two childhood friends—a young doctor and a newly married bride—must balance the expectations of their culture and their families with the desires of their own hearts. As the two old friends discover each other again, they must also weigh the choice between responsibility and freedom, and between loyalty and love.

"A stellar follow-up to Gowda’s excellent debut. Vivid, heart-warming, and absorbing, The Golden Son succeeds as an immigrant’s tale and love story..." —Heidi Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell From the Sky
