After a long silence, I’m trying to return to blogging!
Two recent posts at Sepia Mutiny. The first, a live-blogging of a Law & Order episode that purported to feature a storyline about Sri Lankans. The second, a post about my trip to Torino and my adventures with my fellow South Asian author, Tahmima Anam.
It was wonderful to be back in Bethesda and D.C. this week! Both readings sold out. Thanks for the hometown support! It was really unbelievable to see so many people there. People who taught me in elementary school came!
If you were at the D.C. reading and were unable to purchase a book and would like your copy signed, please get in touch with me. I’m going to look into getting bookplates, which are somewhat fancy stickers that I sign and give to you to put in a book when you get one.
Here’s a picture from Ann Arbor, snapped by the cellphone of my friend M:
I know it’s very small, but if I blow it up, it will be all fuzzy. Humor me. She tells me it is the Love Marriage sign in the window of Borders in Ann Arbor. I believe that this is the flagship Borders store—the original of the chain. I remember when Borders first came to Maryland! It should be interesting to see where it started. Ann Arbor May 28th.
I chatted with Sree Sreenivasan, one of the founders of SAJA, for SAJA Radio this morning. We talked about my plans as SAJA VP, my forthcoming novel, my journalism career and its connection to my literary life, and how the media covers Sri Lanka. Listen here. You can also listen to chats with the new secretary, Anusha Srivastava, or the new president, Sandeep Junnarkar.
