So yesterday (Sat, Aug. 08) I went to the book reading event organized by quickly-becoming-famous author Ganga Bharani, for her second book – A Minute to Death. The event was held at Zha Cafe, Porur. Since I was joined by blogger friends and made some new friends, the evening was super-fun 🙂
Here is the author reading the first two chapters of her book. You can see the audience sitting with rapt attention. I requested the author to read the climax also, but she refused 😛 Looks like I’ll have to read the climax myself before reading the story, a habit I have in common with the ‘Editor’ Nandhita. Wondering: Does anyone else do this? 🙂
Here is what the author wrote for me while autographing the book 🙂 It was great meeting blogger and would-be-author friends Sulaiman, Mahesh, Bragadeesh Prasanna, Salesh, Kavipriya. It was also good to meet Ganga’s husband Rajan, who had to fight for his right to speak 😛 We all spoke about ourselves, our books, what we’ll do if we have only one minute to die (mine was sleep), etc. Pavitra sang a bit of ‘Munbe va…’ song — she has excellent voice! Ganga’s father is a Tamil orator it seems, and he too spoke for a short time.
Here is a unique selfie of Ayyanar with GB’s book 😛 It was a great weekend enjoyably spent in the company of ‘literary-minded’ people 🙂 Hope to attend more events like this in the future.
If you like, you can buy ‘A Minute to Death’ by Ganga Bharani from Amazon.in.
