Summary
Tanuja Desai Hidier appears at the 2014 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.

Notes
-  Tanuja Desai Hidier first gained recognition with her novel "Born Confused," a coming-of-age story that chronicles the cultural struggle of Dimple Lala, a 17-year old Indian-American girl growing up in New Jersey. This text was an American Library Association BBYA book of the year, and was recently hailed by Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone as one of the best young adult novels of all time. Deemed "a journey worth making" in a starred Kirkus review, its sequel, "Bombay Blues," brings another uncertain journey for Dimple, as she returns to the land of her parents in India and discovers new perspectives about herself and those around her. Tanuja is also a singer-songwriter; "Bombay Spleen," her accompanying "booktrack" album of original songs based on "Bombay Blues," is out now.
