Jhumpa Lahiri Will be Awarded National Humanities Medal

Jhumpa Lahiri Will be Awarded National Humanities Medal.

The White House citation reads: “Jhumpa Lahiri, for enlarging the human story. In her works of fiction, Dr. Lahiri has illuminated the Indian-American experience in beautifully wrought narratives of estrangement and belonging.”

She received the Pulitzer Prize for “Interpreter of Maladies”. Her novels, “The Namesake” and “The Lowland” are two books I have personally read, and would highly recommend to everyone.

Congratulations, Jhumpa Lahiri! Well-deserved! Brava!
