Bestselling poet, writer, and Instagram sensation Nikita Gill returns with THE GIRL AND THE GODDESS (Putnam) in conversation with poet and author at a virtual event hosted by Midtown Scholar via Zoom on Tuesday, September 29 at 7:00 pm (ET).

THE GIRL AND THE GODDESS is an innovative novel in verse, exploring Hindu mythology and legend. Meet Paro. A girl with a strong will, a full heart, and much to learn. Born into a family reeling from the ruptures of Partition in India, we follow her as she crosses the precarious lines between childhood, teenage discovery, and realizing her adult self. In the process, Paro must confront fear, desire and the darkest parts of herself in the search for meaning and, ultimately, empowerment.

Nikita Gill’s vivid poetry and beautiful illustrations have captured hearts and imaginations–but in The Girl and the Goddess, she offers us her most personal and deeply felt writing to date: an intimate coming-of-age story told in linked poems that offers a look into the Hindu mythology and rich cultural influences that helped her become the woman she is today.
