SAJA presents authors: Shankar Vedantam and Anand Giridhardas
Vedantam will talk about his new book ‘The Hidden Brain: How our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars and Save Our Lives’ and Giridhardas will talk about his recent reporting experiences in India as well as his forthcoming book ‘India Calling.’ Shankar Vedantam is an author, a national reporter at The Washington Post, and a 2009-2010 Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. Between 2006 and 2009, Vedantam wrote the popular Washington Post column, Department of Human Behavior. Vedantam has lectured at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and is an adjunct professor of journalism at Columbia University.

Giridhardas is a writer liv­ing in Cam­bridge, Wash­ing­ton and Bom­bay. His first book, a work of nar­ra­tive non­fic­tion about his return to the India that his par­ents left, is forth­com­ing from Times Books in early 2011. It is titled “India Calling.” He is a colum­nist for The New York Times and its global edi­tion, the Inter­na­tional Her­ald Tri­bune: his “Cur­rents” col­umn explores fresh ideas, global cul­ture and the social mean­ing of tech­nol­ogy. He just com­pleted a four-and-a-half-year tour as a for­eign cor­re­spon­dent in India for The Times and the Her­ald Tri­bune, as their first Bom­bay pres­ence in the mod­ern era. He reported for four years on India’s trans­for­ma­tion, Bol­ly­wood, cor­po­rate takeovers, ter­ror­ism, out­sourc­ing, poverty and democ­racy. More at http://anand.ly/bio
