With both the Lahore ice breaker and Islamabad Book Club meet behind us, we turn our attention towards new possibilities.
It started with the LUMS Creative Writing Workshop and on Saturday, December 19 we’re convening at Cafe Life to formally kick off the currently dormant chapter, into a hub of life. Future events like book clubs, readings, game nights along with other one-off events in collaboration with LUMS and other universities, are on the cards.
Click here to be redirected to the Facebook event created for this purpose. But just to let you know the overall details, we will be picking out the next selection for January so if you’d like to be involved in that decision, come along. Remember to bring your book pick selections along, either as a list or in hard copy form.
We’ve been told that there will be a fairly solid turn out of desi writers there and as TPTB (the powers that be), we’re excited to finally put faces to those (creative) voices.
See you all there! Meanwhile, enjoy…
For anyone who isn’t on our FB group, a forum member or who isn’t a fan of our page, this is for you.
