The Ilford central library is celebrating the Book and Media festival at the moment. We are waiting with baited breath to meet Monica Ali who is the author of the novel Bricklane. She is coming to discuss her next one called In the Garden on the 1st of May 2009 at the Wanstead Library.
We are proud to let you know that Hema Macherla is going to read from her debut novel The breeze from river Manzeera and answer questions along with her publisher Lynn Michell of Linnen Press who is giving a talk on the 30th of April 2009 at the Ilford central Library as part of the Redbridge Book and Media Festival.
Its said that a brilliant writer is found only when he/she comes out of his/her shell and meets and greets people who could help them to be known to the world. We at Vaani believe in it and hope to arrange for a proper venue soon so that it could be a meeting ground for all of us and to take us to places where only few reach, our space on the sky!
Well nothing works if we don't still find time to do what's our job and that's writing, so here's wishing everyone Happy writing.
