Compiled through family albums, home videos, journal entries, and interviews, Yarn: An Interwoven Memoir follows the life of Pragya Bhagat’s grandmother, Shyama. At the age of 10, the Partition pushes Shyama from Pakistan to India, the first of her many migrations. Yarn is the extraordinary tale of an ordinary Indian family, its joys and fears, its silences and secrets.
Bhagat is a spoken-word poet who has studied and worked in her native India and the United States, including a biology degree at the University of Texas at Austin.
