Presented by the Society for Art & Cultural Heritage of India (SACHI).
Celebrated writer Pico Iyer discusses his recent books — including "A Beginner's Guide to Japan" — with Paula Arai and Robert Mintz.
Join us for an evening with essayist, novelist, and travel writer Pico Iyer in conversation with Buddhist studies scholar-practitioner Paula Arai and Robert Mintz, scholar of Japanese art and deputy director, art & programs at the Asian Art Museum. In this event presented by the Society for Art and Cultural Heritage of India (SACHI), Iyer discusses two very different books, both published last year: “Autumn Light: Season of Fires and Farewells,” a moving meditation on impermanence, mortality, and loss following the death of his father-in-law and “A Beginner’s Guide To Japan,” a playful and profound glimpse into the culture of Japan, where Iyer has lived for over three decades. Followed by a Q&A with the audience.
