Book Lovers Book Club Meet with Sathya Saran

Hey sorry in delaying this post by a week. But here are the details and pictures of our Book Lovers Book Club meet with Sathya Saran. First off, very big thanks, to Sathya for coming and reading from her fabulous book on Guru Dutt, ’10 years with Guru Dutt: Abrar Alvi’s Journey’. The book reading was accompanied by film clips which made the event truly magical and beautiful.

 It was an honour to have you amongst us, Sathya, and here’s wishing you all the very best for all your upcoming titles.

The meeting this time had fewer numbers. Many regular members were missing in action. Hoping that for the next meet we will see higher numbers and also the new members who sent in a request to join the group will attend too.

The members who were present discussed Steig Larsson’s ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and the unanimous view was that Lisbeth Salander was one of the most interesting and memorable characters of the book. Rohini had managed to finish the entire trilogy before the meet and her opinion was that Steig Larsson’s 2nd and 3rd books only get better. A pity he didn’t live to see his success and the sensation his books have managed to create worldwide. So the books should be on everyone’s must read list!

Our next meet is scheduled for 14th November at the same time 2.30 pm. We will post venue details shortly. The book of the month is Audrey Niffenegger’s ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’.

A very big thank you to Crossword and their staff  for managing to ensure the meet went off well and looking after all our requirements.
