Author Speaks on "One Book, One Community"

CREATED Aug. 27, 2012

East Lansing brings another best-selling author to town as part of its "One Book, One Community" program.

Katherine Boo spoke to a packed room at East Lansing High School Sunday night, introducing her book Behind the Beautiful Forevers.

The book focuses on poverty-stricken families in India, using her own experience when she lived there for three years as a journalist.

Boo will speak to MSU students Monday, during the welcome ceremony at the Breslin Center.
