(Virtual) The 86th Village: A Talk with Author Sena Desai Gopal

Join Sena Desai Gopal for a talk about her experience growing up in Yadahalli, a village in Southern India whose days are numbered. In her lifetime it will drown in the backwaters of one of India’s biggest, most ambitious dams, The Upper Krishna Project. One hundred and seventy-six villages will go underwater, and more than 123,000 families will be displaced. The government does not have a concrete rehabilitation plan for the people who will be left homeless and without livelihoods.

This program is hosted by the Newton Free Public Library and is in collaboration with a multitude of MA libraries.


Registration is required for this event.
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
