There used to be an informal bookclub group, which met once a month at Barefoot, ably organsied by Indi’s sister Subhanu. It would be great if we could get this group back on track again; thing is, I would need someone to help me arrange this, and now would be an ideal time as there are plenty of interesting titles at the shop and more on order and due to come in soon. Anyone interested in helping out?
There are three fairly recent publications written by native Sri Lankan’s living overseas: Julian West, Shiromi Pinto and George Aligiah, respectively. We have ordered their books and it might be fun to start with one of their titles. The Gratien Prize will be announced this Saturday, which makes for potentially more interesting material to read, and then we meet (over a beer or two) and discuss.
