Saturday, 11th March – Sunday, 12th March 2017
There’s a new bookstore in town!
From the dingy lanes of Boat Basin to the alleyways of Phase II, we’re bringing the aficionados of the art of book curation, Mr Old. Books, to facilitate us in putting up an expansive collection of brand new books at affordable rates.
Literary fiction, creative non-fiction, essays, biography, science fiction, graphic novel, history, drama, prose, plays, poetry, the love-joys of Urdu literature, vernacular literature (Punjabi, Sindhi, Persian), translations (from world literature into Urdu!), literary criticism, memoir, philosophy… we have something for everyone!
The program will include a panel talk with the book curators, the Siddique Brothers; an evening of the Book Bazaar; and alas, the much anticipated return of the Nakaam Aashiq Open Mic, brought to you by the notorious Nakaam Ishq Society!
On the second day of the launch, we will be reviving the Mushaerah culture in the city with Urdu’s boldest, newest voices in an evening of poetry curated by Neel Ahmed.
