Women and Power with Tahmima Anam and Katie Kitamura

July 21, 2021 via Zoom

Tahmima Anam (A Golden AgeThe Good Muslim) and Katie Kitamura (A Separation) came together to discuss the July 2021 launches of their newest books, both of which tell the stories of women who live in positions adjacent to power, whether in fame or politics. Anam’s novel The Startup Wife tells the story of a brilliant coder whose marriage draws her into the tech world and thrusts her husband into the pressures of social media fame. Kitamura’s novel Intimacies follows an interpreter as she’s pulled into political controversy in the Hague while interpreting for a president accused of international war crimes. Maris Kreizman moderated.
