Milton Public Library is pleased to welcome Meeta Kaur to talk about her latest book Her Name is Kaur and to facilitate a conversation on taking love, courage and faith from many angles to make the world a better place.
Her Name is Kaur: Sikh American women do the lion's share of organizing and executing the business of the Sikh community, and they straddle multiple lives and worlds-cross-cultural, intergenerational, occupational, and domestic-yet their experiences of faith, family, and community are virtually invisible in the North American milieu and have yet to be understood, documented, or shared. Until now. In Her Name Is Kaur: Sikh American Women Write About Love, Courage, and Faith, Sikh American women explore the concept of love from many angles, offering rich, critical insight into the lives of Sikh women in America. Through a chorus of multi-generational voices-in essays ranging in tone from dramatic to humorous-they share stories of growing into and experiencing self-love, spiritual love, love within family, romantic love, the love they nurture for humanity and the world through their professional work, and more. Eye-opening and multifaceted, this collection of stories encourages its readers to take the feeling of love and turn it into action-practical action that will make the world a better place to be for everyone, regardless of their faith or creed.
