MEET THE BRIDE
Monday, August 6, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Join us for the launch celebration of The Elopement, the true story of a couple's life in Ireland after Durham.
The Elopement has one five-star review on AMAZON already! And it's a real person, not me or my Mom (in fact, I have hard time believing my Mom would like it, since I had to elope because she wasn't into my choice of mate. Long story. But a good one! And chronicled in The Elopement.
"How much is too much to trade for a promise of love?"
Join Durham writer Dipika Kohli for the launch of her e-memoir, THE ELOPEMENT.
Readings and conversations about this true story, set in West Cork, Ireland. That's where she eloped in 2000 with her husband, Akira Morita, because her parents (originally from Delhi) weren't into a Japanese boy.
Monday, August 6
Geer Street Garden
When American-born Karin Malhotra* elopes to Ireland with her college sweetheart, she botches the dreams her parents had for her when they left New Delhi with a stalwart philosophy on what a good life “ought” to be. “Opportunity,” her father said, “is in the U.S. That’s why we came.”
But finding herself in Ireland, juxtaposed in not one, but two additional cultures (her new husband is Japanese), Karin finds herself thinking about the early years of her own parents’ married lives, and wondering if, like her, they questioned their decision to leave everything familiar for the mere promise of a better life.
When & Where
Design Kompany & Orangutan Swing
Design Kompany is a two-person studio that designs dialogue. We make great conversation fluid, so we get to potent concepts. That's where we build designs for brand identity, and locate the words to best describe what our clients do in ways that are compelling and authentic, too.
We started in Raleigh, NC, as undergraduates in 1995. After 10 years in County Cork, Ireland, as well as Seattle, we're back and amazed at the local evolution in Durham, NC.
