Author Salman Rushdie, an Emory University Distinguished Professor, has two public events planned this month, the university reports.

The author will hold a public appearance, “Wonder Tales”, on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 5 pm in Glenn Memorial Auditorium. Tickets are free. To request tickets, click here.

Rusdie will be speaking about emerging writers in India during the university’s 5th Annual India summit at the Goizueta Business School’s Boynton Auditorium on Feb. 17, from 4 pm to 5 pm. Two-day passes cost $25, and one-day passes cost $15. To register, click here.

Rushdie has authored 11 novels, including “The Satanic Verses”, which resulted in a fatwa being issued against him by the Ayatollah Khomeini because of the book’s take on the prophet Muhammad.

Emory University also houses Rushdie’s literary archive containing computer files, journals, manuscripts and other items related to the author’s work.
