Creative Writing Reading Series presents Naben Ruthnum
Naben Ruthnum is a Toronto-based novelist, critic and screenwriter. His 2017 book, Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race, parallels the evolution of the incredibly varied dish the subcontinent is perhaps best known for with the narrow ways in which South Asian identity in the West is often received. Ruthnum’s fiction has been published in magazines ranging from Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine to Granta, and he is a winner of Canada’s Journey Prize for short fiction. His two thrillers, Find You In The Dark and Your Life Is Mine are published in North America by Atria / Simon and Schuster in 2018 and 2019. He was in the writing room of “Cardinal” season 4, and he and his frequent screenwriting partner Kris Bertin currently have projects in development at Oddfellows Entertainment.
