  • Books set in Wartime

    Online event

    Hello All,

    This time we'll be discussing stories - fictional or real - set in a war time setting. Since the two World Wars have been discussed quite a bit in the past, this time around, we'd like to focus on wars other than the two.

    As with the previous two meetups, we'll be hosting this one on Skype. Details of the Skype meeting room will be sent to attendees shortly before the actual time.

    Cheers!

  • TV/Web series based on books

    Online event

    Web series are the latest craze in popular culture. Join us to discuss web series based on books and the issues with transforming books to a web or tv series. Does it work better than book to film ? Should the creators stay true to the content of the book? How do audiences differ and what changes need to be made keeping them in mind. What about a series where the series writers have to skip ahead of the author ?

    This will be a virtual meetup. We have decided to continue with Skype as our favoured platform. Link to the meet will be shared closer to the date with those confirming participation.

  • Reading in the times of Covid

    Online event

    We have not been able to meet for a very long time and would like to move to virtual meetups to stay connected.
    Our first attempt will be on Skype on Saturday,the 23rd of May at 5:00 pm.
    Link will be shared with those who RSVP.
    The last couple of months have been a stressful time for all of us, with adjusting to new ways of life, work, isolation, separation from family. We understand that people may not have been able to read much under the circumstances. Hence we are keeping the meetup freeform - talk about anything you are reading currently or even any book you like.
    Looking forward to catching up.
