Tomaquag Museum will host author Padma Venkatraman who will do a book talk about her book, “Island’s End” at 390 Summit Road, Exeter. “From the acclaimed author of Climbing the Stairs comes a fascinating story set on a remote island untouched by time. Drawing on firsthand experience from her travels to the Andaman Islands, Padma Venkatraman was inspired to write this story after meeting natives who survived the 2004 tsunami and have been able to preserve their unique way of life.” After, she will do book signing. Book will be available for purchase. This will be the third in a series of authors visiting Tomaquag Museum as part of the Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Event is free with museum admissions.
