International Literary Society for KL

Apparently Raman of Silverfish is getting something interesting off the ground. There's a report on his website about the first meeting of a Malaysian International Literature Society! (Acronym MILS.)

The aims and objectives:
1. Promote reading and writing at all levels.
2. Promote appreciation and study of International Literature.
3. Organize literary events with local and international writers.
4. Set up a neighbourhood private library, reading, study and teaching centre
5. Work in close cooperation and coordination with all Government and non-Government bodies to promote reading and literature in the country.
The first task facing the committee is to organise the 2nd KL International Literary Festival 27th March - 1st April 2007.
