Book Launch and Reading, followed by Book Signing.
When Home Is An Idea is a collection of poems by Rochelle D’silva that talk about identity and belonging. Rochelle’s poems are deeply personal, but speak of universal themes like longing and travel. This collection challenges the notion of belonging and what it feels like to be at home. The book is divided into three parts and explores the idea that home is not restricted to one place.
