What Waits on Beadon Street

Anjoli Roy, University of Hawaii, Manoa

A Bengali American daughter accompanies her father to his childhood home in Kolkata, which he has not visited since he moved to the U.S. sixty-four years prior, when he was eight years old, only to discover not only details of her father's past, but also that of a long-lost and nearly forgotten great-grandfather turned freedom-fighter.


I would like to read an excerpt from my creative nonfiction story "What Waits on Beadon Street" for J. Mark Smith's panel on Literary Nonfiction and Memoir. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please also let me know if there is a more formal proposal that is required to be considered for this panel.
