"Time has not the power to extinguish me, Don't think for a moment that I wait upon Time." — Nabaneeta Dev Sen
Nabaneeta Dev Sen (January 13, 1938 - November 7, 2019) was one of the most beloved, versatile and prolific writers in Bengali literature. Equally expressive in poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction, Nabaneeta still has over 100 books in print across the world (including translations), in a canon spanning more than 60 years.
Join us this Saturday at 6 pm at Seaport for a special memorial tribute. Her daughter Nandana Sen @nandanadevsen will read from her translations of her mother's poetry, as well as some of Nabaneeta's original prose in English. Nandana will share her own memories, as a daughter and a collaborator, in this intimate as well as interactive celebration of Nabaneeta Dev Sen's achievements and influence. - 27 days ago
