Purvi Shah seeds healing through anti-violence advocacy and creating art. Her most recent book, Miracle Marks (Northwestern UP, 2019), investigates gender violence & her prize-winning debut, Terrain Tracks (New Rivers Press, 2006), plumbs migration and loss. Purvi relishes sparkly eyeshadow, raucous laughter, and seeking justice.
