Sudha Balagopal

When: Sat., May 5, 3-4:03 p.m. 2012

The mysteries of the number seven come together for Sudha Balagopal in her first novel, There Are Seven Notes. Seven short stories capture Balagopal's love for classical Indian music and how it pervades the culture, as the book follows characters in stages of their relationship to music: a young girl taking vocal lessons to please her family, a professional singer re-evaluating his life choice, and a celebrity giving up his dreams of a musically accomplished son. It's the universal language set to musical words. At University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Saturday, May 5. 3 p.m., free. 510-548-0585 or
