Writer Jhumpa Lahiri to Receive National Humanities Medal - NBC News

My article for NBC News Asian America. Congratulations Jhumpa Lahiri on #ArtsHumanitiesMedal !
"Jhumpa Lahiri has influenced my own writing so much," Nina McConigley, Indian-American writer and Assistant Professor of Honors at the University of Wyoming, told NBC News. "When I first read her stories, I thought, yes - this is a world I know, this is a world I understand. I saw myself on the page, which as a person of color, you don't often see in books or in magazines. It was a revelation for me."
