Sayantani DasGupta: The Serpent's Secret

What happens when a regular New Jersey girl finds out she’s an Indian princess and sets off on an interdimensional adventure? You get hooked on your favorite new fantasy series, that’s what! On Saturday, March 3, young readers and their families came to Five Corners to meet Sayantani DasGupta, author of The Serpent’s Secret, the exciting new middle-grade novel that’s based on Bengali folktales. Dr. DasGupta read a selection from the book, talked about her love of Bengali folktales and immigrant families that inspired her to write the story, discussed the upcoming sequel, and more. She was joined in conversation by Shehnaaz Jagasia, of Jersey City’s own Shehnaaz Dance Academy. Refreshments were generously provided by Sri Ganesh Dosa House. There’s always something exciting happening at your local library!
