Saturday Readings

There are readings on in Bangsar at two different locations this Saturday. First of all at 2 p.m. the writers featured in the latest Silverfish collection will be reading from their work, and Mr. Raman himself will be giving us selected highlights from his magnum opus (which I'm ashamed to say I still haven't got round to reading). He has invited member of the Kuala Lumpur ladies Football club to add a smigeon of verisimilitude and there will be food and drink a-plenty to celebrate belatedly Raya and Deepavali. Venue: Silverfish Books 67-1, Jalan Telawi 3.

Bernice has also organised readings for her creative writing students from CENFAD (Isabella Sya, Aina Liyana, Farid Ramlee, Lainie Yeoh) and Sunway College (Helena Foo, Joylynn Teh and Razif Hashim). Venue: 67, Jalan Tempinis 1. These newbie writers deserve support and encouragement, so try to make it if you can. I know Bernice is very proud of them.

If you're canny you can sample both events - leave Silverfish by 3.30 to catch the readings a short walk away at Seksen's place ...

I'm also going there, probably this time in my car, and I'm now trying to look for my Gunesakera books I bought quite some time ago when Monkfish and Reef came out in paperback. Have to get his autograph in those books.
