Arundhati Roy listens

Writer Arundhati Roy seems to be listening to a question from the audience in this photo, which was taken sometime during the early 2000s. This may have been a speaking engagement or a reading; her Booker Prize-winning novel, The God of Small Things, was published in 1997. Arundhati Roy was born in India in 1959, so she was probably in her early 40s when this photo was taken.
