It's all because of Joan Baez...

One of Northern Ohio's most celebrated writers is Bombay-born Thrity Umrigar, who just published her seventh novel, The Story Hour.

So, how did she end up in Ohio, anyway? Thrity Umrigar speaks.
"I was sitting in my living room in Bombay, checking off a list of American universities that offered a M.A. in journalism, when my eyes fell on 'Ohio State University.' There was a Joan Baez record playing on the turntable and right then, her song, Banks of the Ohio, came on. I looked up and thought, 'It's a sign,' and decided to apply there."
