Alka Joshi is a brilliant writer. Her debut novel The Henna Artist is on the New York and L.A. Times bestseller lists. Alka is also a former classmate and a gracious guest.
In less than one hour she reveals the story behind her first book why it is more important to write a book that matters than getting published, and why being vulnerable when we write is a superpower we can embrace.
