The Rubin Museum of Art
150 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011 United States

NYC area alums! Wednesday, December 4 at 7 pm, author Ann Tashi Slater will read from her work and talk about the essential role of tea in her Tibetan family’s life—historically, spiritually, and socially. Her great-grandfather owned a Darjeeling tea estate, her grandmother drank butter tea with the Thirteenth Dalai Lama in Lhasa, and generations of her family have forged bonds over tea in their ancestral home in Darjeeling. Ann will share family stories and read from “Teatime in Darjeeling” (Tin House), her essay about reconnecting with her Tibetan roots.

Following the talk, Ann will be joined by writer Tenzin Dickie for a conversation and Q&A. Audience members can share their own tea stories and will receive a copy of “Teatime in Darjeeling.”
