Register Here: An Evening with Shilpi Somaya Gowda

From the international bestselling author of Secret Daughter and The Golden Son comes a poignant, unforgettable novel about a family's growing apart and coming back together in the wake of tragedy.

The Shape of Family is an intimate portrayal of four individuals as they grapple with what it means to be a family and how to move from a painful past into a hopeful future. It is a profoundly moving exploration of the ways we all seek belonging — in our families, our communities and ultimately, within ourselves.

SHILPI SOMAYA GOWDA was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Her first novel, Secret Daughter, was published in 2010 and became an international bestseller, selling more than 1 million copies worldwide. It has been translated into over 20 languages. She holds an MBA from Stanford University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a Morehead-Cain scholar. She lives in California with her husband and children.

Copies of the author's books will be available for purchase.
