The University at Buffalo (UB) welcomed Pulitzer Prize winning author, Jhumpa Lahiri, to campus as part of its Distinguished Speakers Series on March 2, 2011.
Jhumpa Lahiri received the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for Interpreter of Maladies, a collection that explores issues of love and identity among immigrants and cultural transplants.
Lahiri's 2003 novel The Namesake expands on the perplexities of the immigrant experience and the search for identity. The narrative follows an Indian couple united in an arranged marriage, as they build their lives together in America. A film version of The Namesake was released in 2007. Lahiri's most recent book of short stories, entitled Unaccustomed Earth, received the 2008 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award, the world's largest prize for a short story collection.
In 2010 Lahiri was appointed as a member of US President Barack Obama's Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
