Linda Egenes, Adjunct Associate Professor of Writing at the Maharishi University of Management, will read from The Ramayana: A New Retelling of Valmiki's Ancient Epic--Complete and Comprehensive. One of the world's most hallowed works of sacred literature, The Ramayana has greatly influenced art and culture in India. The story of the bowman Rama and his struggles with evil, power, duplicity, and avarice animates timeless themes of good and evil. This lyrical new retelling by Linda Egenes and Kamuda Reddy has been updated for modern readers.

Linda Egenes, MA, is the author of five books about the benefits of meditation, yoga, and healthy living, as well as three books with Kumuda Reddy, M.D. She has been a practitioner of the Transcendental Meditation technique since 1971 and certified teacher since 1975, and lives in Fairfield.
