About

“Giving strength to Indonesian literature’s newly empowered female voice”

—South China Morning Post on The Wandering

In her startling debut novel, Paramaditha invites you to slip on some ruby red slippers, wander the world, and find your future wherever you train your gaze—be it in New York, Berlin, Jakarta, Lima, or beyond. She will discuss the exhilarating possibilities of global nomadism, set against the aching isolation and loneliness stitched up in solo perambulation. As well as speaking on the aspects of desire, identity, and freedom framing her narrative, Paramaditha will also open up will also open up on her own writing process, and the steps that led to the publication of her first novel.

The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing, and the opportunity to continue the conversation further before the space closes at 9pm
