And Now We Are Seven

A common stereotype of literary gatherings is that they are pretentious affairs: elderly professors in tweed and monocles smoking pipes as they discuss old classics that no one has picked up in a hundred years. ... This, however, was not the case at the celebration of Readings’ seventh anniversary, which took place at the Seksan Gallery in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, earlier this month. There was a lot of laughter, cheer and chatter in the air as a crowd of around 40 people comprising writers and writing enthusiasts alike, all came together for an evening of cake, socialising and literature.

Terence Toh writes about the 7th birthday celebrations for Readings@Seksan. I really appreciate the coverage since we really have something good going with these events.  The next is on February 25th.  More news soon.

Having the chance to take part in Readings in KL some years ago was the highlight of my visit to Malaysia. It's a vibrant and talented community of writers of all kinds, full of young energy (whatever the age of the participants!) and creative folk. Brava to you, Sharon, for running this much needed - and much loved - group!
