Second OL Book Reading Festival, The Lawrence School, Lovedale

I was delighted to participate in the Second OL ( Old Lawrencians) Book Reading Festival that was organized as part of the 155th Founder’s Celebrations, in my alma mater, The Lawrence School, Lovedale on May 2, 2013.

This event had been started last year, where I had the pleasure of reading extracts from and talking about my debut novel, “It Can’t Be You.”

This year’s edition had four Old Lawrencians speak about and read extracts from their books. I spoke about my second thriller, “Lucky For Some, 13.”

The next contributor was Aruna Gill, who talked of her debut novel,  a sharply plotted espionage thriller titled,  “ The Indus Intercept.”

Saaz Aggarwal, who like me, participated in last year’s book reading festival spoke about her recently released book on Sindh called, “Sindh, Stories From A Vanished Land.”

After these novels, we turned to poetry with Shobhana Kumar reading out a few delightful poems from her collection, “The Voices Never Stop.”

It was a wonderful experience which all of us thoroughly enjoyed. I hope the School continues this tradition in the years to come.

For those who might be interested, I have written about the 155th Founder’s Celebrations in my blog, “People At Work & Play.”
