Meet the Author: Award-Winning Writer Kashmira Sheth to Visit Marshall Public Library


Indian born author Kashmira Sheth will be stopping by Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library.

Monday, March 5, from 4-5 p.m., Sheth will speak about what led her to becoming an author, why she continues to write, and read from her works. Sheth is the author of Keeping Corner, Koyal Dark, Mango Sweet, and children’s books Tiger in my Soup, and Sona and the Wedding Game. For her efforts, she has been awarded the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature (Honor award) by the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association, awarded the 2008 Friends of American Writers Award, and placed on the Chicago Public Library’s Best of the Best Reading List in 2010.

“Being with an author in this close setting is unique and inspiring,” said Becca Hyde, Children’s Librarian with the Marshall Public Library. “In this venue we have the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with this talented writer and to celebrate the beauty in her culture of India.”

The event is free to the public and all ages are welcome.

The meet and greet is part of the 32nd Annual Bellon Visiting Author Series which features events at the Portneuf District Library and on the campus of Idaho State University. Authors who are featured in the series are chosen because their works represent a unique cultural perspective.
