Book clubs are being launched in both Islamabad and Karachi, which has started its own thread. Email us for more details and to put you in touch with our coordinator in the city. Meanwhile, we’re still looking for reading material and because we’ve kept an open and revolving door policy, your material will be presented in a first come, first serve basis so if you’re interested, now’s the time to let us know!
Meanwhile, we’re issuing a formal invitation to anyone in Islamabad to attend our next discussion meeting. Have your thoughts and ideas at hand. Without further ado, your invite:
Heralded as a breakthrough first novel, A Case of Exploding Mangoes reimagines the conspiracies and coincidences that led to the mysterious and still unexplained 1988 plane crash of Gen Zia-ul-Haq.
On August 2, we invite you to join us at the Paper Microphone Cafe to discuss the book over coffee, muffins and other delightful delicacies.
The What: Desi Writers Lounge Book Club Meeting #2
The When: Sunday, August 2, 2009 @ 6 PM (please be punctual)
The Where: Paper Microphone Cafe (2nd Floor, Main School Road, Super Market right after the Shell petrol Pump)
The Registration Details: Click here
The Extras: If you can’t find a copy of the book at your local bookstore, you can always order it online at Liberty Books. Not pimping out their service or anything, but the prices are great and shipping is free so what’s not to love?!
The RSVPs: Won’t be there? Not enough time to finish? Bringing in a guest? Mail in your comments here. Also, if you’ve already registered prior to this posting, please don’t register again.
Hope to see you there!
