“An Englishman Abroad”
Taken at the Lighthouse Hotel, the final module of the Galle Literary festival. Pictured here: Three Englishman, who have chosen to live abroad. Dalrymple, Tully and Arthur C.Clarke. Nury Vittachi acted as moderator. This may have been the most popular module with over 250 people attending. Booker prize winner, Kiran Desai’s module “In the Spotlight” proved equally sought after. My favourite was “What makes Sri Lanka One?” of which I will blog about later. Still processing the whole experience. For what it’s worth the festival exceeded my expectations. So congratulations to everyone, especially to those who worked so hard behind the scenes to make it all so successful- for. a. first. Lit. Fest.
