Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri will read from her first novel, "The Namesake" (Houghton Mifflin, $24), at Poly Prep Lower School on Oct. 7 at 7 pm.

In "The Namesake," Lahiri expands on the themes (the immigrant experience, culture clashes, the conflicts of assimilation and relationships between generations) she explored in her prize-winning collection of short stories, 1999’s "Interpreter of Maladies" (Houghton Mifflin, $13). In "The Namesake," Lahiri writes a saga spanning three decades about the experiences of the Gangulis, an Indian-American family.

The free reading at First Street and Prospect Park West in Park Slope has been arranged by the Park Slope Community Bookstore. For more information, call (718) 783-3075.
