"Silent Winds, Dry Seas" - Literary Salon: Book Reading and Discussion with the Author Vinod Busjeet Followed by Dinner at the Schiller Residence in Virginia, USA

Silent Winds, Dry Seas by Vinod Busjeet 

ONE OF NPR’S BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR • A sweeping debut novel that explores the intimate struggle for independence and success of a young descendant of Indian indentured laborers in Mauritius, a small multiracial island in the Indian Ocean. 

“The beauty of Busjeet’s splendid, often breathtaking book is, like the best stories of journeys to young adulthood, the precious and well-observed and heartbreaking details of day-to-day life.” –Edward P. Jones, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Known World 

Annette and I have known Vinod and his wife for a while, through the wine bar of Bistrot Lepic and Wine Bar. We were very happy to have him at our home in McLean for a book reading and discussion, with Annette Schiller`s food and my wines. It was a most stimulating and entertaining evening. Thanks Vinod.
