“I think that the power of art is the power to wake us up, strike us to our depths, change us.”
– Jhumpa Lahiri in the New Yorker

A Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author and commentator on the lives of immigrant families, Jhumpa Lahiri will join Tyler Cowen for a wide-ranging dialogue as part of the Mercatus Center’s Conversations with Tyler event series.

Lahiri’s work highlights the unique difficulties faced by immigrants and their families. Whether describing the hardships of a lonely Indian wife adapting to life in the United States or illuminating the secret pain of a young couple as they discuss their betrayals during a series of electrical blackouts, Lahiri’s bittersweet stories provide a compassionate insight to the difficult lives immigrants lead as they adjust to life in America.

Drawing on her own experiences as a first-generation immigrant, Lahiri’s writing forces the reader to consider the unexpected challenges of immigrants who grew up in the United States. Lahiri describes one of those challenges as an “exile” from both her native country and the one she’s grown up in. Born in London to Indian emigrants, moved to the United States at two-years-old, Lahiri felt exiled from each culture. This drove her to adopt another language entirely. Instead of attempting to embrace the American culture and language that felt as foreign as her native Indian, Lahiri moved to Italy and learned to speak and write in Italian. She embraced an entirely different culture and language and continues to be an intriguing and successful author in Italian.

Lahiri’s most recent work In Other Words (2016), an autobiography written in both English and Italian, explores the often emotionally fraught links between identity and language. Once again drawing upon personal experiences, Lahiri’s work continues to strike a chord with readers.

Lahiri won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her first published work “Interpreter of Maladies” (1999). She also received the PEN/Hemingway Award for best fiction debut of the year and an O. Henry Prize. In 2015, the National Endowment for the Humanities at the White House granted Lahiri the prestigious National Humanities Medal. She is currently a professor of creative writing at Princeton University in the Lewis Center for the Art’s Program in Creative Writing.

National Chamber Ensemble Presents HAPPY HOLIDAYS:

On Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 PM the National Chamber Ensemble welcomes the Holiday Season withHappy Holidays! at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre. Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick joins NCE as Guest Host. An annual tradition, NCE’s holiday concert will delight with classical masterpieces and holiday favorites together in one fun program for all!
Guest soprano Rebecca Littig, who has sung leading roles at La Scala in Milan, the Vienna State Opera and London’s Covent Garden, will charm with music of Mozart. Undoubtedly the most well-known sacred piece from Mozart’s early years is the Exsultate Jubilate for soprano. Completed during one of the composer’s trips to Italy, this exuberant work was the creation of the 17-year-old Mozart — the piece is a miniature vocal concerto in three movements which concludes with a brilliant Alleuja — a favorite of sopranos, concertgoers, and worshipers the world over.

Twelve year old violinist Brandon Du, the 2016 winner of the National Chamber Ensemble Outstanding Young Artist Achievement Award will make his debut with NCE performing the music of Bruch and Sarasate. Don’t miss hearing this fantastic young musician.

A group of young musicians will also come together to perform a masterpiece by J.S Bach.

The program will feature music of Mozart, Bach, Schumann as well as holiday favorites such as Leroy Anderson’s Sleighride, a Hanukkah Fantasy, favorite carols and more. The concert concludes with a Carols Sing-Along to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Celebrate the season with NCE artists and special guests in this exciting program.
A reception for all will follow the performance

Free Parking:
For all evening and weekend performances, free parking is available in the building garage, accessible from Arlington Ridge Road, one block east of Kent Street. See map above.
