Local author to appear at Book Works

The Book Works will present author Shilpi Somaya Gowda on May 3 at 7 p.m. Gowda will read and discuss her novel “Secret Daughter,” recently released in paperback from William Morrow. Gowda’s presentation will be immediately followed by a book signing. This event is free to the public.

“Secret Daughter” is a stunning tale that explores the emotional terrain of motherhood, loss and belonging. Gowda deftly tells the story of two families, continents apart, who are inextricably bound to their love of one young girl.
